This successful story began in July 2013 with “Le Tour de France de LaBiotech”. Philip Hemme and Joachim Eeckhout, both from the French engineering school of Biotechnology « SupBiotech », passionate about the topic, took their bikes to interview 26 French biotech firms.
The result, a documentary featuring those companies, was shown and appreciated around Europe and even in the United States.
“We believe we can change how people perceive Biotechs and share with them the passion we have for this sector.” Philip Hemme
Following this success, they decided to reproduce the journey in Boston, Ireland, the UK, and Germany. They plan to make soon a documentary in Denmark and one in San Francisco Bay area.
