Dmitry Morozov

President of BIOCAD

15 years ago I was working in a bank, and one day I got bored. I decided to go to Japan to study the partnership program between MSU and Keiyo. There I learned a lot about how to create an innovative business. I wondered what we could do in Russia, besides pumping oil and gas from a hole in the ground, that would be both interesting and profitable. So I got started. I knew nothing about the pharmaceutical industry, but began to build a factory. I thought the main point was to run a modern production facility, which would bring us profits. Once we had built it, it became obvious that there were almost no biotech products in the country, and that all the talk about our R&D was no more than empty words. So we chose another way - to invest in science. Now I realize that every day we are working on one of the most interesting tasks that benefit humanity.

The beginning. Story of success.

Belarus

Sales, marketing

BIOCAD in Belarus

BIOCAD has been present in Belarus through its subsidiary BIOCAD-Bel LLC since 2012. It was established with the aim to develop, implement and support the business model of entering new markets with BIOCAD's own sales force. In a tight competitive environment, finding the right marketing model is a vital part of business strategy. In Belarus BIOCAD created an approach which combines continual benefits to the customers with a strong team of medical representatives, and respectful relationships with physicians.    

Market access is particularly challenging when alternative sales communication channels are created to move along with the traditional ones. In addition to the traditional physicians approach there are a wide variety of available opportunities. The strategy implemented by BIOCAD-Bel LLC takes advantage of these by including other programs, such as informational web sites for the patients, mobile applications and special discount-rate programs for those consumers who have to cover their expenses out-of-pocket. 

Strategic approach to the market of Belarus is based on a clearly defined business model. It includes a value proposition, determining the end-customers and the type of relationships sought, and finally selecting the mix of channels chosen to address the market. This model could be easily adapted to any country with the lessons learned and insight gained from market interaction. BIOCAD-Bel LLC serves as a platform allowing BIOCAD to test and proof its business concepts granting valuable experience for future international implementation.
