Who We Help
We Grow Life-Science Companies
Using data-driven, culture-sensitive methodolgy, we guide the C-Suite in building thriving teams and partnerships, entering new markets, and pushing their companies forward.
Complicated solutions waste money and generate bigger problems. We see through the chaos of the complex world we live in with an unorthodox lens, developing simple solutions that lead the way forward. We analyze clinical trial ecosystems, assess risks and opportunities, and refine or reinvent your business models.
By combining our most powerful ingredients – data, strategy, marketing, technology, and compliance – we turn insights into better, more informed decision making. In a collaborative context, we get you to confront biases and guide you to tackle challenges related to strategic alliances and other partnerships. Not only to invoke mighty coalitions and explore new ways of doing business and conducting clinical research, but to ensure that you remain aligned and engaged with multiple stakeholders (the board, regulators, business partners) in the process.
Our goal is to change the landscape of how business is done today by using marketing, market research, governance and oversight, budgeting, training, and compliance – forging them into a total partnership package.
In addition, our life-science executive recruitment specialists take a holistic approach, asking the right questions, so that we find the talent that is right for your company’s unique culture and goals. Gifted leaders who will thrive at the helm of your ship and expand the scope of what you think is possible. We collaborate with you to build stronger teams with diverse perspectives, working in harmony to devise innovative, never-before-seen solutions.
At the same time, we uncover how you can become a more appealing employer to your ideal future executives, coach your executive talent to discover their inner potential, and improve internal and external relationships.
Finally, we are especially experienced in helping companies make the jump to Europe from other parts of the world. We not only lead you through the logistics, but we examine your identity, goals, and competition, working with you to re-position your brand to speak to the culture of your new market.
Everything we do is designed to give your board members what they want: a better, more prominent, more profitable company. We work with you to build a diverse and inclusive board, a stronger governance structure, and a transformative business strategy.
We achieve this by working together to evaluate the total picture: your business’ past, present, and future, looking at talent, marketing, company culture, compliance, internal and external collaboration, growth, and more to build a more vibrant version of your enterprise. With a focus on optimizing your board’s membership and operations, we develop the most thoughtful and simple solutions possible, driven by data and technology. We work to grow your organization and teams with purpose, so that you have a positive impact on the world through better decision making, with inspiring leaders at your side.
We work to empower your team, creating a workspace where men and women of all backgrounds feel comfortable and can exert their best creative and intellectual influences on the boards of life-science companies. We believe that boards that bring together a variety of backgrounds and perspectives are the secret to innovation and success. It is our passion to work with life-science leaders to establish diverse collaborations that work and bring critical thinking to strategy and execution.
In addition, we lead companies to find and fix the internal obstacles holding them back. That might mean securing investors, overhauling HR infrastructure, finding and managing the right external partners, implementing more efficient and effective governance and oversight, or taking the leap across the ocean to establish operations in Europe – all while safeguarding legal compliance at every step.
We are more than just recruiters. We work closely with HR teams to not only find better, more synergistic job candidate matches but to lead more effective HR teams in general. Teams that place diversity, inclusion, and belonging at the core of their organizations. We will even place one of our own HR specialists on site as needed.
Nearly 50 cents of every R&D dollar is spent on outsourcing. It is imperative to your business that you make that money count. We’ll show you how. We deliver more satisfying contract negotiations, easier and more effective training for new partners and team members (through your own bespoke online platform), better communication, and beyond.
We take care of (and train your team to take care of) each step of the recruitment process, including gleaning market insights: what does the candidate pool look like? Figuring out what type of person you really need. Finding them. Attracting them. Asking the right questions when interviewing them. Employing effective, comprehensive pre-employment screening. Efficient and effective onboarding. Capitalizing on your digital infrastructure to transform your organization.
We stand right beside you to successfully scale up your recruitment efforts in a cost-effective way, working with the HR team as a whole to break down and rebuild whatever is needed. Whether that’s the application process, the market perception of the company as an employer, or the entire infrastructure. We’ll then use our custom algorithms to mine the market faster, finding talent matches based not only on skill and experience but on the bigger picture: your ability to work together.
When needed, we will even place a member of our own team on site with you to work as an interim consultant, with the rest of our team supporting them. Giving you the speed of an agency with the stability of an in-house recruiting team.
You are on the front line of your organization, and it’s your interaction with clients that gets sales made. We are experts in this. We will help you to optimize these everyday client-facing interactions, driving more sales, and smoothing out any bumps along the way before they can derail your success.
Our role is to make your job easier. Through greater (and more positive) awareness of your company and its mission and core story, for example, we can smooth the path to strong, lucrative leads. In the end, we empower business developers to perform better within organizations, leading to stronger sales and greater overall company success.
It’s not only storytelling and company alignment, we also give business developers the right tools to develop priceless customer insights that enable them to strategically tailor their approach to different stages in the sales process.
Business developers must also effectively collaborate with internal teams to ensure that they can overcome a client challenge with the right solution, and effectively deliver that solution – we help with tools and insights to drive collaboration within the organization as well.
We can help you find, train, develop, and retain other sales and marketing leaders – but that is just the beginning. Our marketing guru and her team will work with you to (re)develop a brand that effectively communicates the best of your company to the outside world.
The goal is superior marketing and sales optimization. The method is a combination of a commercial mindset and life-science know-how. The way to get there is by burrowing down to the heart of your company, uncovering what makes it tick, and what makes others connect to your brand. Then we put that heart on your sleeve, showing the world why they can trust you. Why they should work with you.
We will tackle this for you, covering everything from brand strategy, web design, and marketing operations to strategic market positioning and important sales training for scientists. Branding includes logos and company colors, yes. But that is only after strategy. More importantly, it involves finding what makes your company unique, making the right connections to the right brand audience, and claiming your place in the life-science industry – an industry in which we, collectively, have decades of specialized experience.
Biotech + Pharma Companies
We help small, mid-size, and Top 50 biotech and pharma companies to scale up their operations and people, implement effective training and brand positioning, and ensure compliance. Working as an extension of your team, we stimulate new growth from the inside out.
Overall, our mission is to coax sustainable productivity and innovation out of your people and resources, to get your product further down the pipeline more effectively. With us by your side you will implement the best-fitting governance structures, find the right staff, select more optimal clinical trial partners, negotiate better agreements, nurture more effective teams, clarify the message you’re broadcasting to investors, engage patients more effectively, and always be up to date on the latest industry rules and regulations.
We are also experts in international expansion, especially from North America into Europe, within Europe (including the UK), and from Asia into Europe. We know where the pitfalls of transitioning from one market to another lay, and how to guide you around them.
Clinical Resource Organizations of any size are seeking the same thing: success. Successful patient and interim team member recruiting. Successful partnerships. Successful teams. Successful trials. Successful sales. We help you get there.
We work with all levels of your organization, helping you recruit and train, motivate and retain your team, from trial technicians to the board and the C-Suite. We examine everything from the patient recruitment practices to how well you can keep stakeholders happy. And then we figure out how you can do that better, and get better results.
We’re passionate about compliance as a means of ensuring trial quality. We have comprehensive GCP knowledge – and a convenient, auditable, and effective white-label platform to make sure your entire team does as well.
Finally, we’ve had success in uncovering unique positionings for CROs in the market, and in helping them expand internationally. We will take the lead in everything from logistics to branding, helping you not only arrive but also integrate into the local culture. Leading to wider acceptance and better business results.
Compliance Managers + Leaders
We’ll admit it: we genuinely enjoy staying up to date on life-science rules and regulations.
No one knows more about GCP training than we do. How can we not, when the swiftly changing regulatory landscape is so fascinating and laden with implications for your work. We can lead you through this ever-changing landscape, making it easy for your team to keep their training up to date and your clinical trial compliant.
We offer bespoke, white-label online training platforms, where team members can quickly update their training on the fly when regulations change, as well as have access to more intensive in-person trainings.
We are also the best possible partner to have on your team when you’re navigating the murky legal waters of international expansion.
Compliance, quality, and continuous learning is our mantra, and we work with biotech and pharma companies, CROs, hospitals, research networks, (grad) students, freelancers, and even people outside the life-science industry to ensure risk mitigation, maximum safety, and successful compliance.
