STARTUPS IN EUROPE
TO THE BENEFIT
STRONG & AFFORDABLE COMMERCIAL RESOURCES
Have you been enrolled in an incubator program to help you progress your science and product development, managed to get a CE-mark, but realized that funds were drying out, as the length of the commercial process had been underestimated? In that case, you are not alone.
However, should you have a highly innovative product for launch in Europe, we are here to help you. We offer to sell your product for you, and we can even support you in local reimbursement processes if required.
We are an international team of experienced sales managers, living in or near the various European markets, ensuring maximum local knowledge and the chance to build on existing customer relations.
As a cooperative organization built on non-profit principles, we bundle start-ups and niche manufacturers within specific therapy areas to generate economies of scale. We multiply sales resources by the number of participating members to create maximum sales push for all, at the lowest possible costs.
