Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse
Helping entrepreneurs grow their companies and returning results to our region and investor community, that’s our mission. At the Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse, our domain experienced staff provide the knowledge, connection, and capital needed to navigate a complex healthcare system – ensuring commercial success.
Navigating the path to commercialization isn’t easy.
Sure, it takes money. But sometimes you’re missing the right management team, the right source to navigate a complex regulatory problem, or solid market research to support your commercialization plan. Our Executives-in-Residents have had successful careers in the Life Sciences and can guide you to success as well. And our team of Investment Managers can provide information and resources to steer you in the right direction.
The first step towards success is understanding that knowledge is the connection to capital.
You can’t be an expert in everything. You’re an expert on your technology, but in business it’s often the undocumented, experiential expertise that can make the difference. Let us help you navigate the healthcare system and position your technology for competitive and funding success.
