Business Development & Alliances
Business Development is a job title often attached to very many functional disciplines. Ultimately, the job of business development is to find new opportunities of a commercial nature. In the pharmaceutical or biotechnology market the role of a Business Development professional is typically to explore opportunities to work in strategic partnership or alliance with other companies who share therapeutic or technology interests. This symbiotic relationship is an attempt to seek partners who can support the development of new products and through commercial arrangements share in the success of new products.
Look across the whole life sciences sector and you see many different collaborations between pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, but equally between therapeutic drug companies and medical device or medical companion diagnostic companies. Liftstream recognises the significance of this interdependency and the importance of recruiting business development professionals who can identify and create new and successful partnerships.
Liftstream focuses on these very important jobs because they often act as the bridge between global pharmaceutical companies and the emerging innovators. The right partnership, licensing deal, investment or alliance can be transformational in many respects, helping bring new products to market, treat patients and reinvigorate the prospects of a company.
Liftstream recognises how important it is our clients are supported to recruit the world-class business development professionals but also the individual executives who have developed their careers in the business development arena, are fully supported.
