RTS, in concert with its partner, CommonWeal, LLC is identifying, analyzing and animating the network of serial entrepreneurs and investors (Dealmakers) within the Los Angeles region’s biotechnology cluster to support the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation’s engagement with the County of Los Angeles to deliver an implementation plan to support the cluster. This CommonWeal/RTS effort will focus on connecting the bioscience Dealmaker network to key assets within the development strategy and implementation plan to support value creation, business formation and growth, technology transfer activities, commercializeable research outcomes, talent development et al. The basis and driver for the overall approach employed for this analysis is a proprietary analytical tool– the CommonWeal DealMapper – that delivers big data-driven detailed insight into the dynamics of entrepreneur, investor, and company networks that power new value creation within economies.
