Australia and New Zealand’s world-class science in health, food, and agriculture is widely recognised among multinational companies. However, partnering and investment opportunities in this region can be constrained due to geographical separation and the cost of maintaining a team here.

BioPacific Partners offers a suite of services to fill this gap in a cost-effective way by connecting multinational company clients with cutting-edge innovations across Australia & New Zealand to match their wants and needs.

HOW WE OPERATE

We work under CDA to our corporate clients to gain a thorough understanding of their needs and wants. We can then assess innovators and frame our reports through this lens.

Because we have many corporate clients across a number of sectors we are able to make enquiries about innovations or capabilities without disclosing the name of the interested corporate. Many of our clients appreciate the ability to be anonymous during the early stages of interaction.

We always ensure that the information supplied to our corporate clients is non-confidential, even if it has been difficult to find, thereby providing protection against contamination of our clients I.P. When, if, mutual interest is established we facilitate the signing of a CDA directly between the corporate and the innovator body.

Our business relationship with you is based on fee-for-service, rather than a success fee, so you can be assured that our advice is objective and unbiased.

We can provide all of the above services, without the need to establish a new contract each time.

Local Due Diligence

Across our team, we have considerable experience in closing deals and therefore an understanding of the requirements of our multinational clients. We fully understand that you will want to take full responsibility for any decisions. However, we can provide local information and insights regarding legal and accounting bodies and ensure that the innovator entity of interest full understands your requirements, aiding in fulfilling them, if necessary.
