Success at TOP 100: Ranga Yogeshwar honors BioVariance

Ranga Yogeshwar congratulated BioVariance GmbH from Waldsassen on its success in the TOP 100 innovation competition with a personal video on 26.11.2021. In addition, the science journalist recognized the achievements of this year’s TOP 100 companies at a joint online conference. The occasion was the TOP 100 final, which was originally planned as a face-to-face event. Ranga Yogeshwar is mentoring the innovation competition, which is being held for the 28th time. “True innovators are constantly changing, reinventing themselves and coming up with surprising solutions,” Yogeshwar said of the achievements of the TOP 100 companies. “During the Corona crisis, for example, they identified opportunities and came up with innovative processes in record time.” BioVariance was particularly impressive in the competition in the category “Innovation-promoting top management” in the size category up to 50 employees. The company’s innovation management is rated “A+” overall (on a scale of A to G). The “A” rating is awarded to companies that have unusually professional innovation management, even by international standards. Interdisciplinary work is also part of BioVariance’s innovation strategy. The team is composed of biologists, data analysts and software developers, among others, and aims to find innovative solutions for precision medicine in the healthcare, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. In cooperation with physicians, the company monitors a patient’s molecular characteristics over a period of time to predict the efficacy, side effects and interactions of drugs and to determine the appropriate medication and dosage on an individual basis. Analysts develop cutting-edge technologies for oncologists and use scientific research to help them select the best possible therapies for their patients. “Regardless of which specialist area an employee belongs to at our company, we place a lot of value on everyone contributing and developing their ideas,” says Managing Director Dr. Josef Scheiber, explaining the company’s strategy. For larger projects, top management makes 25 percent of employees’ working time available. “Innovation successes set standards. And when everyone can contribute, it also strengthens motivation and cohesion among each other,” emphasizes Dr. Scheiber. “In this way, workflows are optimized and accelerated, so in the end, customers benefit as well.”
