Top tier, industry-specific, sales & research support for life science consultancies, all within flexible, no-obligation contracts and transparent proof of activity & results.

We are, in essence, a consultancy to consultancies. Perhaps a bit of a tongue twister, but it is hard to know how else to say it. More specifically, we work for life science consultancies, that is, consultancies to the pharmaceutical & medtech industry.

Primarily, we are here to help you sell your consultancy services to the pharma industry; though you can also outsource stakeholder engagement and payer/KOL research to us on behalf of your pharma/medtech clients.

We also have both a passion and the services to help Health Innovators sell into health systems through early stage health economics & market research.

Our two senior directors each spent over 15 years in top-10 life science consultancy and pharma roles in project management, sales directorship and pharma sales/NHS liaison. We know your challenges first hand, and we are here to help.

Why not benefit from our top tier, industry-specific sales & research support?

We offer flexible no-obligation contracts, and provide ongoing, transparent proof of our activity and results.

Yes… it really is that simple.

That’s enough about us. What best describes your current situation?

  • We need a dedicated Business Development function
