Our consultants have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of healthcare markets:

  • More than 30 years of experience in the healthcare environment
  • A dedication to strategic, management and organizational issues for pharma and med tech companies

Since 2001, becoming smarter has been our corporate ambition…

… and delivering smart services has been our corporate mission

To do so, we have made the following radical choices that make us unique:

  • Remain a consulting boutique (< 7 full-time consultants) to ensure higher agility and level of service quality
  • Put innovation at the center of our priorities
  • Offer our clients the possibility to get a 7/7 and 24/24 service (check!)
  • Condition the payment of our consulting fees to our clients satisfaction
  • Cultivate our passion about sharing & serving (as acknowledged by the pharma companies we have been working for)

Our triple expertise enables us to create synergies to deliver our clients unmatched services
