Broad Strategic Approach

Biopharma companies in need of capital come with many different profiles. Some are startups seeking to discover new drugs based on emerging insights into underlying mechanisms of disease. Others may have begun that way, but now have drugs in clinical trials. Many are still privately held, while others are publicly traded. Some may even be established pharmaceutical companies looking for creative ways to fund expensive clinical trials.

Our strategies, described below, are designed to help companies in all these categories pursue their goal of developing novel and effective therapies for patients.
