This article reviews the support tools available for young biotechnology firms in Israel and points out the need to expand these tools to the area of networks. Such a service would be of specific importance to biotechnology entrepreneurs who have a relatively low starting point in terms of relevant social capital, limited business, and managerial experience. If public support schemes are to support innovation they must broaden their range of services and not focus solely on R&D.
