Babu™ is a non-profit biotech company bridging the worlds of private funding with academia by delivering venture and human capital only to the most revolutionary Projects represented by our Three Pillars: Biogerontology, Developmental Biology, & Regenerative Medicine. Babu™ unifies and democratizes science (and business) by giving equal chances to EVERYONE and assessing each submitted Project with the greatest precision unmatched by any governmental or private entity.
Why a non-profit?
Babu™ is a non-profit company because it wants to make sure that everything it works on will be free of any external manipulation, greed, or corporate hostility. Babu™ sends a message that it’s here for change.
What is the structure of Babu™? Is Babu™ one company?
Babu™ has the Headquarters which always will remain non-profit. The Headquarters is home for the Executive Board (EB) and the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). Babu™ also has its own financial arm, Magi™ which carries out all of Babu’s™ main for-profit operations. In some circumstances, Babu™ builds or will build new subsidiaries (daughter companies) for bigger Projects (mostly internal) so that they can flourish and grow more freely, but under the watchful eye of Babu’s™. In this case, Babu™ is one big enterprise made of multiple companies.
How does Babu™ help?
Babu™ helps in two main domains: financial funding and science & development. For the first domain, it’s all about money. If Babu™ likes the Project, it will participate by covering from 50 to 100% of total cost of that Project. In this way, the time needed to complete the R&D part of the Project will be highly reduced and the world will be sooner blessed with the phenomenal results. For the second domain, Babu™ will use its own and one BINOS™ system to network scientists, labs, academic centers, etc. With the support of Babu™, no longer will good projects fail to realize their revolution.
How is Babu™ different from other biotech companies and from other non-profits?
Babu™ as a biotech company focuses on real progress beyond just re-releasing the same product again and again in order to create profit. Babu™ instead focuses on the most impactful therapies and cures. Babu™ as a non-profit not only generates profit but also remains independent.
What does it mean that Babu™ “bridges the worlds of private funding with academia”?
Private funding world (venture capital firms, angels, etc.) has the money, but not necessarily the potent creativity and pushing strength. Academia is home for great-minded scientists (at least some of them) usually with no financial leverage. Then there is Babu™ - bridging these two worlds and building something entirely new.
How does Babu™ benefit from the private funding?
Babu™ accepts money from the private funding sources (remaining independent from any governmental or bigger corporate influences) and delivers them entirely to the Projects (both internal and external). With every new round of funding the Three Pillars grow taller and stronger, so to say.
I am not a scientist or a businessman – how do I relate to Babu™?
One way or another, everyone relates to Babu™. You don’t have to be a businessman to invest in Babu’s™ Projects (see SPINE™). You don’t have to be a scientist to come up with an incredible idea. You might as well be a donator who pledges their $1 to the greatest company in the world. You might be a patient who will benefit from Babu’s™ actions. You might be a strong and positive voice carrying Babu’s™ name high and far. Don’t you ever forget – we all are Babu™.
Is there any competition to Babu™?
There are none who directly compete with Babu’s™ future business model. There is a plethora of biotech companies, some focused on one technology or one drug, some focused on a dozen of products. There is a throng of non-profit institutions (yay!) out there in the world, but they usually do not tend to make billions of dollars in R&D and give it all back to people while simultaneously making investors happy.
How does the Project Submission System work?
It’s a robust digitalized system gating each major decision-making level in Babu’s™ SAB. In other words, the PSS is a well-regulated tool for the SAB Members dedicated only to reviewing external Projects submitted through third parties. This saves time and energy for the reviewers, making their decisions firm and reliable.
Who can submit a Project to Babu™?
Everyone who’s got a revolutionary idea fitting in Babu’s™ Three Pillars. It does not matter if you are 15 or 95, you are a high schooler or academic researcher or if you are rich or poor. All that Babu™ cares about is the idea and the progress.
What if my Project has been rejected – Can I resubmit it or submit another one?
Yes, if the final decision is rejection, you can resubmit your Project after two years with major improvement based on the reviewers’ assessment. You can also submit a new Project. However, the same two-year period must pass.
How many Projects does Babu™ accept yearly?
There is no cap for the number of Projects submitted nor for Projects accepted.
What requirements must a Project have to be qualified for submission?
The SAB Members are given a loose criteria description for submitted Projects, however, the two major factors are: a Project belonging to one or more Pillars and bringing an unparalleled concept. It’s about scientific revolution, unbiased idea, and delivery of reliable promise to the world. In the end, each Project submitted to Babu™ is assessed on many scientific, economic, material, and social bases by the most trusted scientific board in the world. Some major points that Babu™ makes towards the excellence and expectations from each submitted Project are:
An absence of research bias
A rationale for the select group chosen as the focus group
Well-worded, open-ended questions prepared
Well-designed and well-executed study approach
Data-generation methods and database fields clearly specified
Varying assumptions present in order to analyze alternative scenarios of the research
Well-documented, accurate, and clearly structured
Objective and intellectually independent
A proposed project addresses a real problem in the world, generates new questions, and is incremental
How does Babu™ help scientists?
In two main ways. Babu™ supports the Projects financially and substantively by being engaged in the scientific process. Babu™ also supports Projects as well as external scientists through its extensive support network, Babu’s™ International Network of Scientists or just BINOS™ (see What is BINOS™?). Through these highly dedicated steps of support, Babu™ makes sure that 1) each accepted Project gets to the finish line and changes the world, but it also 2) strengthens every scientist who asks for help.
How does Babu™ benefit from funding the Projects (for scientists)?
Let Babu™ be both idealistic and realistical. Idealistically, each accepted Project falling into one or more of the Three Pillars, which has a chance to be completed with full success, is a chance to bring the scientific revolution to everyone’s door. The scientist can move on to the next ground-breaking idea and the patient might get a longer, healthier, and better life. Realistically well-nourished and outstanding scientific revolutions can bring revenue to the four parties involved: the scientist, the patient, the investor, and Babu™. This creates a positive feedback loop for both the science and business sides of this wonderful symbiosis. In the end, it’s the patient who benefits the most and the world which has just made one step farther into the brighter future.
What is the definition of a “scientist” in Babu™?
Anyone who has a scientific idea worth a nod and cares about the world and other people.
Does Babu™ claim any rights to my Project and/or its results?
If Babu™ helps through BINOS™ - no, not at all, it’s all yours (and later the world’s). If Babu™ supports the accepted Project, then it holds some percentage ownership over the produced IP right or patent according to a customized legal agreement but the majority of rights belongs to the Projectees. The point of Babu™ claiming some intellectual rights of each supported Project is to protect it so it can grow into a reality with no unwanted external manipulation.
What is the definition of an “investor” in Babu™?
This might bring us into a longer and technical discussion, but there are really two kinds of investors that Babu™ welcomes: 1) investors investing in Babu’s™ external projects (in this category anyone who invests, no matter how large or small, is considered a world-changing investor), and 2) investors putting their capital in Babu’s™ business entities letting it grow and develop (they are called strategic partners). Babu™ couldn’t go on without the support of either group.
How do I invest?
You can contact us through our email or in the future through our app. We’ll be happy to present you with our current projects and inform you of everything you need to be confident in our selection.
Do I invest in Babu™ or its Projects?
Actually, both (see What is the definition of an “investor” in Babu™?). You can either choose to invest in one or more of Babu’s™ Projects or in Babu’s™ development itself. If the Project you invested in becomes a success, scientifically and commercially, the return aids Babu™ immeasurably, so by investing in Babu’s™ Project you also supported Babu™ itself. This means you have just brought Babu™ closer to become the biggest good-doing company on the planet.
How does Babu™ help investors?
In a couple of major ways. Babu™ delivers the most risk-free scientific Projects thanks to its outstanding SAB. Additionally, through its focus and by building the world’s largest scientific network (see What is BINOS™?), Babu™ formulates an environment of trust and unity between all parties involved. This and the democratic process of doing science and business makes an investor feel safe. It’s absolutely necessary to make the investor come back. With every investment, the investor has a high chance to receive a return relative to the initial investment, and the 15% cut for Babu™ gives it a chance to keep the engines running. This means that one investment supports a Project, a selected patient population, Babu’s™ process, and Vision.
How can a non-profit company make profit?
This is an excellent question! You see, Babu™ has the non-profit Headquarters where main decisions and regulatory processes take place. But Babu™ is more than that: it’s a conglomerate of larger and smaller entities handling profit operations on a daily basis. Babu™ operates a subsidiary where investors put their money in Projects and Babu™ , get their returns, cooperate with Babu™, and Babu™ itself participates in the financial process by delivering the pooled money into the Projects and getting its 15% cut from each successful return. Babu™ itself is where the ideas of Babu™ are kept safe, where the IP rights belong, where the Executive Board and Scientific Advisory Board are, where donations go to, where societal help is given from. They’re connected by a bridge called Unity. And as Babu™ builds a bridge between the worlds of academia and industry, so it does build its own bridge inside the walls.
How does Babu™ handle for-profit activities?
Babu™ has a special business entity handling only the profit activities.
How does Babu™ benefit from funding the Projects (for investors)?
Babu™ fulfills its Mission and Vision, and especially the promise of changing the world by giving out hope to people. Every successful Project is a miracle product for science and patients. Every successful Project is a return of investment for investors and a cut for Babu™ which can be used for more Projects and Babu’s™ expansion. Every successful Project is a success for the SAB and its Members who build the world’s largest scientific network, BINOS™. Every successful Project makes Babu™ bigger and builds a taller lamp that lights up a bigger piece of the world.
I am an investor. Can I choose which Project I want to invest in?
Yes – as a matter of fact you should. It’s up to you to decide which current Project you want to support. Moreover, you can choose more than one!
How do I know my investment will return profits?
Every investment carries risk, no matter how certain your bet can be. However, with Babu’s™ SAB behind each decision and its own experience in biotech, Babu™ reduces the risk of failure on every investment. That’s more than anyone in the business world could ever say.
How does Babu™ help patients?
Patients, or people in general, are the main target that Babu™ wants to help. With that on mind, literally everything that Babu™ does is calculated towards the greater good of the world. Every investment, financial decision, administrative process, every progress made, every obstacle fought, every rule changed – this all is directed toward patients and everyone who can benefit from Babu’s™ Mission and Vision.
What can patients do to help Babu™?
Believe in it. Support it through your hope and inner light of positive energy. You can also donate $1 or more once a month, once a year, once a decade. You can be a patient and an investor (see What is SPINE™?) at the same time. You might as well be a patient and an inventor who knows how to cure your own disease. However, the most important thing you can do is to believe in the symbol of Babu™. Doing so you are one more person changing the world with it.
How does the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) work?
It is going to be the world’s biggest SAB, composed of exactly 100 Members, with 32/32/32 Members distribution among the Three Pillars. Besides, each Pillar will be represented by its corresponding Pillar’s General (SG) who will be in control of the Project Submission System (PSS) for his/her Pillar. On top of that, the SAB will be under the wise guidance of Supreme General (SG) who will also hold the Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) seat in the Executive Board, thus fulfilling Babu’s™ prophecy of bridging the academic and industrial worlds within Babu’s™ walls. Each Project is submitted as an intra- (one) or inter-Pillar (more than one) Project. Through the uniquely designed PSS, the review process is dynamic and reliable, with each Member having one democratic voting right (yes/no). In order for the Project to be qualified for Babu’s™ support, it must receive at least 75% “yes” votes with at least 70% Members attendance per Pillar.
How does the SAB make Babu™ even greater?
Babu’s™ SAB underlines scientific democracy and shows that one can obtain efficacy in the review process and yet strengthen the risk factor assessment in a streamlined manner. It is Babu’s™ SAB that selects all its Projects and therefore brings scientific revolution to you.
Babu’s™ SAB is supposed to have 100 Members. Is that true?
Yes, it’s true.
I am a scientist and am willing to join the SAB. Can I apply?
Unfortunately not. It’s Babu™ who chooses its own SAB Members and Babu™ only. The seat of an SAB Member in Babu™ is not only prestigious, but it holds high responsibility that not everyone is able to confront properly. However, it is possible to recommend someone you know through the website (www.babusolutions.com/scientific-advisory-board).
How does Babu™ choose its SAB Members?
Through its external and internal networks of scientists and through the use of the BINOS™ system. The final decision is a culmination of all required and sought virtues, including experience, career achievements, dedication, open-mindedness, involvement in extra-academic activities and organizations, reliability, rectitude, and high status in his or her respective field of interest.
Must the SAB Members come from at least one of the Three Pillars (Biogerontology, Developmental Biology, & Regenerative Medicine)?
Yes, this is a definite requirement to become a Babu’s™ SAB Member.
Today & Tomorrow
What else does Babu™ do except for supporting revolutionary Projects?
Babu™ is dedicated to unite people from business, science, and other domains of life through SPINE™ so that everyone can be equally contributing to both the business and science parts of each supported Project. Another great endeavor is to bring BINOS™ to the world and open doors for every scientist in need of help or simple like-minded communication. Every university, academic institution, laboratory, incubator, and your basement workplace united under the guidance of Babu™. Babu™ takes its non-profit mission very seriously. It is not only about the financial and human capital support of a Project, but also taking care of its future in terms of intellectual property rights, licensing, subcharging, administrative regulations, and everything between. No more hiding a revolution in the closet. No more buy-outs. No more threats or passive aggressive attitude toward brilliant but small science-entrepreneurs. Babu™ is here to save science AND people. Babu™ has its own internal research which can only progress. Now its focus is directed to developing the world’s first therapeutic and prophylactic Covid-19 drug (Babu-One™), but Babu’s™ ambitions are much more far-reaching. Yes, you read it right! With each success, Babu™ will be expanding by building its own labs and work spaces to support BINOS™ and scientists in general. Watch out – much more is coming! In Babu’s™ pipeline there is a couple of other side-track developments that for now will remain in cognito (hush!), but as time progresses so will Babu™ speak more of what’s coming next!
Is Babu™ a global enterprise?
Yes, this is the only way to support its Vision and Mission. There is the Headquarters located in New York, but the global expansion is happening as you read these words.
What is BINOS™?
Babu’s™ International Network of Scientists (BINOS™) will become the world’s largest network of scientists and science supporters grouped together under the single banner of Babu’s™ Vision. Its accessibility will be possible through the mobile app or direct contact with Babu™ through its website. BINOS™ will support its members through six main domains: 1) Guardianship, 2) Problem-solving, 3) Laboratory services, 4) Equipment/Materials, 5) Facility services, and 6) Networking. Divided into three grades (A, B, C), the membership will be accessible to everyone according to their engagement and qualifications.
What is SPINE™?
Scientific Parallel Investors Network Elite™ (SPINE™) is dedicated to connect all of Babu’s™ investors in two ways: 1) financially in the mobile app, where everyone will be able to invest in any of Babu’s™ current Projects, and 2) conceptually, through being a Babu’s™ investor, no matter how much you contribute and how often. This program will allow Babu™ to bring its Revolution one step closer to completion.
