Strategy Development

With solid information as the foundation on which to build a plan for reaching your biotechnology business objectives, we can assist you in formulating effective strategies for US market access through appropriate channels or by direct entry.

Technology and Patent Tracking

We supplement our BioTech Circle's free articles and gene-related US patent/patent application activities on this site with custom tracking of organizations, technologies and people. Let us know your requirements and we'll outline several options for you to evaluate.

Market Information

There is so much going on in the life sciences that locating the information you need can be a daunting task. We provide a range of services, from something as simple as finding a contact name to custom, detailed market and competitive analyses (complete with reference URLs and other sources) and primary (phone, visit, focus group and Web survey) research.

Funder Identification

Lengthy development/commercialization cycles and the resultant need for large financial investment (patient money) characterize the biotechnology industry. We can develop for you a targeted list of prospective funders for your technology development from our extensive, regularly updated, database of biotechnology and life sciences investors worldwide. Of course, registered members are also welcome to post Seeking Funding ads at no cost in the BioTech Circle Partnering Center.

Cross-Cultural Consulting

Business practices vary among different countries, and even within different regions of the same country. We can help you understand the business practices that are unique to Japan, enhancing your means for forming solid business relationships.

Technology Research

For our Japanese clients, we provide regularly scheduled reports (in Japanese) on US biotech patents and patent applications, based on specific keywords or other client criteria. For our non-Japanese clients, similar reports (in English) are provided on Japanese biotech patents. We also provide bi-lingual clipping services of Web-based documents based on your specific criteria. These tailored reports allow you to review and keep up with current biotechnology activity for partnering or other purposes. We will be happy to provide our communication support services for making contact with authors or other resources.
