Commercial development is a core competency in an early stage company, especially in a resource-constrained environment. The ability to identify potential investors early and align the development plan to meet the expectations of the investors are critical to optimize value and the return on investment (ROI). Understanding the needs, requirements, and opportunities of potential strategic partners is a key step in these transactions.

Commercial Support

Commercial support for early technology development is essential to determine the therapeutic areas, indications, or medical procedures that are commercially viable. The design of a competitive Target Product Profile guides both early and late stage development. Understanding the market opportunity and value proposition a technology offers is key to attracting funding or finding a strategic partner. Investing millions of dollars on clinical trials can be devastating if the true commercial potential of an asset in development is not understood early in the process.

We have extensive experience and deep subject matter expertise in all core areas of the commercialization pathway, including new product planning, strategic marketing, portfolio planning, market opportunity and commercial assessments, pre-launch and launch strategy, interaction with Key Opinion Leaders and core message development. In addition, we can provide fund-raising preparation and high-level connections for both non-dilutive and dilutive opportunities.
