How We Work

Our Team Approach

Our Team Approach

Working in highly integrated 2-3 person teams, consultants develop their business acumen, enhance soft skills, broaden their professional network, and expand their knowledge of the business of science.

As a group, we participate in monthly development workshops, small group discussions, and large conferences where we rub shoulders with industry leaders from around the world. Former members have gone on to become consultants, product specialists, bench scientists, and patent agents.
