After IT, it is biotechnology that aims to power Indias tech growth engine. Entrenched in a network of biotech companies in Indias Bangalore-Hyderabad region, Biocon stands as a leader using innovation as an energizer. Much of the credit goes to entrepreneurial leadership of Ms. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw that transformed a fermentation company based out of a rented garage into Indias fastest growing and most powerful biotech firm.
The case illustrates the development and importance of network effects in innovation driven industries using the example of biotech in India. The case also examines the importance of leadership in innovation and the need, in such a situation, to form alliances with partners for sharing knowledge and learning new technologies.
