CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

The development of a country has to do with many factors. One of them is the investment it makes in research, development and innovation. This is a fundamental measure—one that must transcend any changes in government. We should focus on the medium and long term, to support the country as it joins the knowledge society, generates value-add, and gains international presence based on the outcomes of that research. And in this we have a considerable responsibility as entrepreneurs: Not only does Argentina allocate a very small portion of its GDP to R&D compared to other countries, but also 85% of that investment comes from the public sector.

I was once asked, "Is Silvia Gold the great woman behind?" Of course not-- she is the Great Woman in front. She is my life mate. We started together and have done everything together. It is difficult to find work-life balance working with your wife. With Silvia, we found it when we decided to focus on different areas, assuming different roles within the organization. When I give talks, I always feel that Silvia is missing next to me-- I would not be what I am without her.

Oftentimes I ponder why I took up Medicine. One day my mother told me, "you have to be a pediatrician." It was a commandment for life, as my mother played a very important role and helped me a lot in my life. When I arrived at the hospital, what I found was very different from what I expected. The patient was depersonalized, almost transformed into an object, an organ. I felt uncomfortable having to charge a person who was sick, who had a medical need, so I started studying Social Psychology with Enrique Pichón Riviere.

When in 1976, through a grant from the Ibero-American Cooperation Institute of the Clinical Hospital of Barcelona, I settled in Spain, I did not take long to understand that my career as a psychiatrist was not going to take me where I wanted. In 1977, we started a business that bought raw materials for medicines and sold them to pharmaceutical companies. The encouragement of my father-in-law, Roberto Gold was fundamental in this project.

When we started the company in Barcelona in 1977, our key differentiator was the technical know-how, supported by our passion. Most of our competitors had better business training and were transaction experts, and while I had never made a check, we had a scientific calling and a clear purpose: to produce medicines that were more accessible and affordable, to improve quality of life in the best interest of the population. It was not before long that I understood one thing: The business person is always in the middle between the producer and the buyer. I soon realized that we needed to have our own production.
