An immuno-oncology biotech company, headquartered in New York, had recently signed a global collaboration-license agreement with a big pharma company worth 1 billion USD allowing our client to expand their existing portfolio.
The vibrant oncology biotech market in the Nordics was a specific target for our client, but without local affiliates the initial outreach and sourcing was complicated.
Szpirt & Company was hired to provide on the ground support in the Nordics to source partnering opportunities specifically in the field of immunotherapy.
We executed a complete search, screening and selection of biotech candidates, mapping and analysing the technical platforms, key assets and lead candidates in terms of a strategic fit.
In total ten biotechs were shortlisted for executive partnering meetings with our client.
Szpirt & Company facilitated the early negotiations with the shortlisted candidates including C-suite presentation rounds. After the first round of partnering meetings we provided support in the second round of negotiations.
