Biotech investment & funding
In Andorra, the biotechnology sector is emerging but has a lot of potential. One of the main problems is to find funding and the model is still undefined. However, investments in biotechnology usually have good results. In Spain, for example, biotechnology investment offered a yield of 5.02%. Venture Capital has a yield of 50% with a maturity period of 5 to 7 years.
