Unique and innovative online business model looks to connect the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry
Online PR News – 20-November-2013 – Qatar – After working hard for several years to achieve a degree in Pharmacology, Faisal Ismail was excited to be taking his newly earned qualifications and formally jump into the professional industry world of pharmaceutical and biotechnology.
As is the case with many graduates, leaving university education and entering the world of work offered an exciting challenge with endless opportunities. However, despite relentless job searching and days upon days spent hunting out vacancies, Faisal soon realised just how difficult the employment market can be, even for those with the higher levels of education and professional training.
The once held appeal of graduates, had now created a niche of ferocious competition, often with many over-qualified individuals competing for each and every vacancy. Not only was this difficulty meaning an extended period of unemployment following the completion of university education, but the subsequent effects were soon deepening the existing debt already incurred from years of study.
The simple truth was that the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is a fragmented and unconnected market. As a natural entrepreneur, Faizal began to develop a strategy designed with the sole intention of clearing his educational debt which now burdened him and proved to be one of the biggest concerns as he began to establish his career.
Director, Faisal Ismail said: “I quickly realised there existed no single space on the web where pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies could advertise, network and make contacts. I also knew from experience that this was one of the primary reasons graduate job hunters struggle to identify opportunities. I created PharmBioWorld.com as a one-stop solution”
The driving factor behind idea quickly grew into a plan designed to not only clear mounting university debts but also address the industry problem that was preventing so many qualified graduates from securing good employment. The solution was the creation of an innovative and unique online platform designed specifically to help pharmaceutical and biotec companies network with each other, secure new business opportunities and also provide job seekers with a one-stop location for making contact with an enormous range of niche companies.
The website concept involved selling small, affordable advertising spaces to companies, which would then be displayed alongside other like minded companies, both industry giants and new-starts. After a lot of hard work and planning, PharmBioWorld.com was launched in August 2013 to unite specialist companies of all sizes with individuals working within the pharma and biotech fields.
As a new online entity, the web based service has already attracted the interest of a series of industry giants, including Johnson & Johnson, Astra Zeneca, Lilly, Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline and Merck. The site also provides a fantastic forum for companies to connect with other like-minded companies to encourage collaboration and new business relationships. Since launching, the PharmBioWorld service twitter page has began to gain momentum with hundreds of followers keeping track of developments at https://twitter.com/PharmBioWorld.
'PharmBioWorld' is the first ever advertising service which pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies of all shapes and sizes from around the world. The company is to bring together industry players, provide global exposure and also connect them with like-minded entities through conventional and social media driven approaches.
