So you’ve launched your life sciences start up, but are now struggling to find the time or resources to take your business to the next level. What’s next?

Congratulations – you’ve made it. Launching a life sciences business is the first step in making your research and resulting product public for widespread use, and the first step is by far the most difficult of all. However with great innovation comes great responsibility – as you’re now finding out. It may be that you need more people on your side to help you with your mission, or that you’re struggling to put a finger on why you’re not getting the results you want, and need help identifying where your business strategy is falling short. 

At ScaleX Consulting, we have more than 15 years’ expertise in business management, people strategy, HR services and more to help boost your business acumen, and get your startup on track to reach your goals. 

We can assist you with:

1. Business Strategy

1. Business Strategy

Entrepreneurs/start ups initially find it challenging to manage every aspect of business function ranging from sales, marketing to strategic planning. We say time is the essence in the start up game. Some business owners spend a lot of their time doing the business themselves, which restricts business growth and profitability. If success is what you desire You can always count on us. We pride ourselves to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for start ups like yours, providing invaluable multi-dimensional support in all aspects of business management. Everything we do is tailored to you: we’ll work closely with you to understand your business and market to drive your company’s growth.

2. People Strategy

2. People Strategy

When your people strategy aligns with the organisational mission as a whole, it empowers everyone across all levels to perform the most effectively. Our Head of People Operations will help you put the right talent in the right position to make an impact. From hiring the best leaders, retaining the top talent or nurturing the necessary skills, we will work closely with you to look into the future and decide what skills, knowledge and competencies the business is going to need in three, six or twelve months to meet its strategic goals.

3. Marketing Services

3. Marketing Services

Starting a life sciences business is exhilarating. Unfortunately, the “build it and they will come” theory doesn’t hold much weight and those overnight success stories you hear about are often the result of behind the scenes years of hard work. Simply put, startup marketing is a unique challenge oftentimes because of the limited resources, whether it’s time, money or talent. Our marketers offer the absolute best in strategy, design, execution and deliver high-quality results that will give you a competitive edge against other companies in your field. 

4. Funding Sources & Applications 

4. Funding Sources & Applications 

The extraordinary discoveries occurring within the life sciences today will lead to tomorrow’s therapies and products with the potential to solve some of the most challenging diseases and to fulfill the most demanding unmet needs. Without access to affordable capital and strategic resources, it’s difficult for life sciences companies to navigate the complex world of fundraising and turn their novel concepts into approved products. Our Startup Coach will provide you with a list of funding options for your startup and will guide and support you through the application process to ensure that your runway doesn’t end before your research does.

5. Legal & IP 

Developing a patent strategy for your business will provide a strong foundation for future growth, revenue generation and investment. Our Legal and IP consultant will work closely with you to develop a plan for protecting the technology that will form the core of your company – crucial at this early stage. This will help to maximise the value of your company, looks impressive to investors, and will minimise the chances of surprises down the line. We conduct commercial and intellectual property audits designed to identify risks and opportunities, which can be a very cost-effective way of improving commercial strategies and focusing on unlocking the value in these business assets.

6. Pitch Deck Planning & Presenting

6. Pitch Deck Planning & Presenting 

Pitching your startup idea or product to a room full of investors is extremely nerve-wracking. With the right presentation deck, you can hold potential investors’ attention long enough to explain what your product does and why it’s a good investment. A good presentation isn’t a substitute for a good product. You need to have both to win over a crowd of investors who hear pitches all day long. Getting early investment in your company can mean the difference between surviving and failing. We help companies raise capital with powerful pitch decks and honed presentation skills. 

7. HR & Compliance 

7. HR & Compliance 

Writing staff contracts? Investigating a grievance? Making redundancies? If you’re in the middle of a HR issue, then you know that there are a lot of employment laws involved. You may think you need to call a solicitor, but – honestly – you don’t. Using ScaleX’s HR+ Service, you’ll ensure the right decisions and processes are put into place when and where they need to be. You can trust us to build an agile HR infrastructure in your organisation that poises you for growth.

A lot rests on your health & safety policies. Without the right training and experience, it’s easy to miss risks and hazards.
