We help you move your mission forward faster.
A consulting team based in Waltham, Massachusetts, and Bridgewater, New Jersey, we typically work with startup and medium-sized companies backed by venture capitalist or private equity investors, and have expertise in the disciplines of strategy, project management-based implementation, communications, and public health. We understand the life cycle and major milestones of biotech. For example, in no particular order:
Transition from academia/spinout from pharma
Demonstrating proof of concept
Fund raising and establishing partnerships
Emerging from stealth mode
Preparing for clinical trials
Achieving regulatory approval/clearance
Creating a reimbursement strategy and pathway
Launching your product(s)
While each company is as unique as its technology and application possibilities, all companies must have an actionable plan for meeting these milestones in order be successful at achieving the company’s maximum value. We can be with you every step, or in a few key parts, in your journey — focusing on the most efficient way to get to your next milestone, while advising on pathways that don’t divert from your longer-term goal.
WHAT’S THE OPTIMAL TOOL FOR YOUR COMPANY? A SWISS ARMY KNIFE, NOT A SCALPEL
You have limited resources (people and money), critical milestones to achieve, and little time and bandwidth to get them done. The natural instinct when looking for help is to choose a consultant who’s great at accomplishing the specific task at hand. A scalpel is the smart, resource-efficient tool choose, right? Actually, we think the better choice is a Swiss Army knife equipped with a compass and a road map; it has broad utility and keeps you vector-based. That’s a more-apt description of our approach, which takes the typical life cycle of the company into account— not just what’s happening today, but what you’re aiming for tomorrow, the next milestone, and the one after that. Because each action your company takes today toward the immediate milestone can have consequences in achieving future milestones down the pike.
We believe that most biotech startups are better served with embedded partners who have well-rounded experience in multiple disciplines rather than narrow contributors that require your time to manage. We can be the commercial operation extension of your company to fill the gaps in your team, even if you’re still conducting business in stealth mode.
Think of us as your Swiss army knife.
A MIREPOIX (pronounced meer-pwah) is the flavor base for a wide variety of dishes, such as stocks, soups, stews, and sauces. It is typically a simple combination of aromatic vegetables – traditionally celery or celeriac (celery root), onions, and carrots – finely chopped– raw, roasted, or sautéed with butter and/or olive oil.
There are many regional mirepoix variations, which may substitute or add other ingredients, such as leeks, shallots, parsley, garlic, bacon or diced ham.
Whatever the individual components, it’s the combination of flavors working together that creates the strong foundation and makes the dish coalesce.
...And that's exactly what we do for our clients.
