converting concept into product

Discovering opportunities, accelerating development and partnering wisely

Why Greenfire

How we build success

Medical innovations are precious and exciting and come from all over. Making a good idea in medicine into a product is a difficult and expensive process. It requires expertise and capital often not available for startups completing laboratory proof-of-concept.

That’s where Greenfire comes in. We have assembled experts, advisors, service providers, and capital to deploy on late pre-clinical and early clinical assets to accelerate their development into products.

Our extensive network seeks out exciting innovations, engages flexibly with the innovators, and accelerates the transition to medical products. We take the unappreciated risks out of development – timely access to expertise and capital. If you think you have an innovation that fits our profile, contact us.

And when a product is ready for the last steps for approval and commercialization, our team has deep experience in navigating the right path to optimize success and return for all participants.
