Message from Esco's Group President & CEO
Esco’s Vision is to provide enabling technologies to make human lives healthier and safer.
The fact that biology is unpredictable and so much is still unknown – yet so much knowledge is being uncovered now – means that there will be great things to be achieved for those willing to play at the cutting edge of medicine, science and risk taking entrepreneurship in the 21st century.
The health care system as we know it today, is in need of reform, whether in the US or China. In the US, health care costs are runaway with mediocre outcomes. China is aging dramatically. With increased affluence, the empowerment and education of women around the globe, maternal age is rising and fertility rates have declined. Many countries are aging and the health care burden will soon to be too much to bear. Governments will need to keep their citizens working productively for longer.
The future of health care lies in precision and prevention, with a clear focus on patients. Early detection and diagnosis will become more important than ever, as prevention is always better than cure. Of course, the world will always need new treatments, but the bar must be set higher for truly innovative approaches enabled by cutting edge science, which are also cost-effective for the health care system and families.
As a life science company, Esco is contributing to meeting these challenges of the 21st century.
Esco Ventures invests in biomedical startups and is also engaged in venture creation to discover and develop technologies addressing large unmet medical needs.
Some of our investments are in the fields of cancer, precision medicine diagnostics for predicting and preventing pregnancy complications, novel life science tools and diagnostics platforms, and regenerative medicine. Our companies are collaborating with leading academic institutions, hospitals and clinicians around the world to discover and develop these technologies.
We invite like-minded partners, scientists, clinicians, entrepreneurs, investors and other stakeholders to join us on this journey.
