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.
Our process sounds simple but execution is where we excel
Deploy very experienced biopharma team for efficient drug development and business management
Utilize a successful organizational model; leverage virtual operations focused program management and partner ecosystem of service providers
Exit programs after advancing candidates to an appropriate value inflection point
Provide excellent returns to investors by delivering superior products to patients
