QuickConsult Can Position Your Business for Sale or the Market

The medtech industry is growing year over year as technologies advance and opportunities arise with an aging market (the U.S. population over the age of 65 increased 18% from 2000 to 2011). The United States is the global leader in the medical device space—harboring $110 billion of the $350 billion in total revenue internationally. If the U.S. medtech industry wants to stay at the top of the global leaderboard, though, it’s going to have to capitalize on the strengths it has exhibited as well as seek out new opportunities for growth.

No matter where your med dev company may be in its life—startup or well-established industry leader—QuickConsult can help you down the path of fine-tuned business development.  From entering the market, maintaining position or preparing for an exit, our deep pool of experts is full of people with the answers you need. With QuickConsult, simply ask your questions (or questions if you are seeking a longer-term consulting engagement) and have industry experts vying for you within minutes. Our experts are thoroughly vetted, so you can rest assured you’re working with the cream of the med dev crop.

What Is Business Development?

Business development is exactly what it sounds like; developing your business for success. Now while that may seem like a straightforward description, it is a very nuanced role. For example, a business in its infancy will need different development help than a business that is being sold and exiting the market. These businesses will have different questions pending their phase in development, and they would need different types of expertise in order to fully answer their questions.

When a medtech business is just beginning, its business development strategies should be geared toward decisions and pursuits that create long-term value. Larger businesses may need help honing in on sourcing biz dev opportunities, evaluating their value and securing the deal. The essence of any medtech business development, though, is evaluating new markets, creating strategies and executing those strategies for the best outcomes possible.

Don’t get left trying to sort through what is best for your company and what the best path may be. QuickConsult’s business development gurus have worked for Top 5 Medtech Companies as well as smaller companies. Our business development areas of expertise include:

Portfolio strategy

We can help craft your portfolio of assets to achieve your financial goals.

Merger/acquisition guidance

Mergers and acquisitions can be tricky terrain for a medtech company of any size. Not only will you have to think about integrating existing operations and systems, but you’ll also have to adequately plan for integrating employees. With so many moving components during a merger or acquisition, there are a lot of steps where errors could occur. Our experts can answer questions and provide guidance and strategies for the accounting, finance, human resources and manufacturing side of things. We can help tie up any loose ends and help you ensure a smooth transition whether your company is experiencing a merger or an acquisition.

Company integration

Product expansion

How does a medtech company expand its product line or capabilities? Whether it includes growing your internal R&D department or reaching out for partnerships with other businesses, there are many ways to grow your oferrings. QuickConsult’s experts can tap into your potential or look at options with fresh eyes and expertise to select which would be the wisest path for you.

Investing

Distribution channels

Market analysis

Discovering where your biz dev opportunities are is one of the first steps to growth. QuickConsult experts can help you when it comes to analyzing your market—knowing your target audience, completing a competitive analysis, pricing, etc. There are a lot of components to a good market analysis, and a good market analysis can provide your business with a road map for growth when done correctly.

Valuation Support

If your medtech company is headed toward a merger or acquisition, one of the primary values you’ll need to be aware of is the valuation of your company or the one you’re acquiring. Researching, assessing and writing valuation reports can be costly and time-consuming—especially if completed by someone inexperienced in valuations.
