What We're Saying...Our latest thought leadership

Early Stage Biotechs:  What's Essential and What's Not
You are a CxO at an early-stage BioPharma company. You've succeeded in obtaining your first round of funding, and those investors and your small team are excited about the prospects of your unique therapy for patient outcomes. That said, you are losing sleep each night. As you toss and turn, three key questions seem to haunt you:

1. How do I get into the clinic?
2. How do I get the right people for our team?
3. How do I meet milestones to keep raising funds?

Even as you grasp at potential answers to these questions, sleep continues to elude you as you realize that the questions are interrelated; answers to one seem to depend on the answers to others. And on it goes, late into the night.

Strategic Procurement for Emerging Pharmas and Biotechs
Given limited capital and staff resources, emerging pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies depend significantly on suppliers for drug development success from initial discovery to first in human clinical trials and regulatory approval. As a result, the sourcing and procurement function requires a strategic mindset aligned with business goals to drive an efficient purchasing process throughout the entire supply chain, from initial raw materials to patient delivery. This mindset and process transformation are essential in helping emerging companies gain a competitive edge in therapeutic development, market approval, and return on investment.
