The life science industry has grown up quickly around new science and innovative technologies. Breakthrough products command high dollars and propel companies to market dominance. So how important is branding to a life science company's overall marketing strategy? Do their scientific customers really care about the color of a website or style of a logo when the company delivers data and quality? Gaetan Fraikin, CEO of Audacity, says yes. As the life science market becomes more and more competitive, branding can be key to differentiation. Being number one or two in a market makes all the difference, says Fraikin in today's interview.
