For start-ups and small companies

Start-ups and young firms in most business sectors struggle to survive – 80% failure rates are often cited. Life Science start-ups face additional survival risks due to longer product development cycles, regulatory approval structures and the costs of specialist laboratory infrastructure.

Starting and growing a bioscience business relies upon, amongst other factors, knowledge, contacts and professional advice. You need to access funding and investment, excellent understanding about your route to market and customer needs, introductions to potential customers and suppliers, and top-quality advice on a range of issues from IP protection, talent recruitment, and specialist insurance and risk protection.
