Our consulting practice focuses on three areas: Commercial Assessment, Business Development, and Start-Up Advisory, all supported by Cadence’s deep Market Research capabilities.

Commercial Assessment

Our clients must balance the quest for growth and innovation with the near-term demands of their core business.  To build value, they either seek new applications for identified medical technologies – whether new therapeutic indications for drug compounds or creative Use Cases for software solutions – or first identify market opportunities and then look for solutions.

Business Development

Companies, governments, and investment funds, engaged in innovation efforts, work with us to successfully transform their concepts into commercial ventures.  Healthcare companies, whether pharma, health services, health IT, or med tech, are increasingly looking for growth opportunities outside of their own organizations and skill-sets, but they may not be equipped with processes, competencies, or external networks to properly source innovation.

Alternatively, technology companies may have a valuable market solution, but need to partner with an established organization to access its commercial presence and capabilities. In addition, new ventures centered on an innovative solution or market need may require help with developing and implementing a business plan to raise funding and get operationally “off the ground.” Often, clients need related strategic advice outside of any particular transaction.
