Since more than 20 years, Prof. Dr. Horst Domdey is the key person of the business-oriented life science
activities in the greater Munich area. As Managing Director of BioM Biotech Cluster Development GmbH
he oversees all ongoing local and regional activities in biotech, med-tech and health-tech. His excellent
network with hundreds of local and international scientists enables him to identify upcoming innovations
very early. He is the first contact for life science entrepreneurs who intend to start their own company
and he has accompanied in this role more than 100 start-ups in their realisation process. More than 40
of those received a seed investment through BioM AG, BioM’s finance arm. He has extensive knowledge

Dr. Mathias Schott, Director of Life Sciences at FCF, is very excited about the new members: “With Dr.
Goll and Prof. Dr. Domdey, our board now has two further significant specialists with whom we can
further broaden the high level of expertise that we already have in the sophisticated field of life science.”
Arno Fuchs, CEO of FCF, also sees the latest additions to the Life Science Advisory Board as part of
his company’s overall strategy: “FCF operates as a financing specialist in segments that are challenging
not only in the area of finance, but also at the operating level. With this in mind, we always strive to
combine the highest available expertise in these areas within our committee members. The fact that we
can welcome Dr. Goll and Prof. Dr. Domdey to the Life Science Advisory Board, clearly shows how
consistent we are in implementing this strategy,” said Arno Fuchs.
With these appointments, FCF further complements its existing Life Science Advisory Board consisting
of Claus Schalper, Serial Entrepreneur with seed to IPO experience, and Dr. Holger Bengs, initiator and
organizer of European Chemistry Partnering, the latest conference / initiative for venture and growth
companies in the chemical space in Europe.
