OUR VISION

We believe life sciences hold the power to help us build a more sustainable, equitable world.

We see incredible innovation coming out of Australia and New Zealand across all sectors – agriculture, food innovation, biotech, medtech, animal health, pharmaceuticals, environmental science, and consumer goods. We also see innovation getting ‘stuck’ when it comes to moving into the global market.

Exceptional innovation deserves to have an exceptional, global impact. That’s where BioPacific Partners comes in – taking local innovation to the world stage.

OUR INDUSTRIES

our work

Governance advisory for an early stage Agritech venture

The early-stage agritech company was faced with the challenge of managing conflict between the board and shareholders. The founders engaged BioPacific Partners to deliver governance advice to unify the board and provide stability while also protecting the interests of the founders. BioPacific also assisted the company in preparation for their subsequent capital raise by setting up milestones, scoping and engaging with investors, and providing ongoing support to close the funding round.

Establishing a botanical drug company

BioPacific Partners helped an innovator to establish a botanical drug company. This included mentoring the CEO on commercialisation strategy, organisational governance, and preparing the company for fundraising. As a result the venture was able to raise an investment of $600,000 seed funding from angel investors. BioPacific continues to work with the venture, assisting with initial recruitments and preparing for the next fundraise as the product approaches FDA approval.

Unleashing the potential of a manufacturing medical technology

BioPacific Partners helped a publicly-listed Medtech company to identify new areas of application for their novel medical technology. The technology initially focused on sports and performance, however, BioPacific was able to identify 13 new areas of application. Further discussion and prioritisation resulted in the company focusing on two of the recommended sectors and initiating development plans to enter these markets. As a result of this expansion, the company has since tripled in value.

Value-growth for smart beverage

BioPacific worked closely in the growth stages of a functional beverage company as they were positioning themselves to enter the market. BioPacific helped create a road-map value growth strategy, prepare the company for financial due-diligence, and to develop targets for subsequent fundraises.  Our team worked with the founders to prepare for their upcoming capital raise by strategising critical milestones and setting down multi-phase plans that were underpinned by the incoming investment. The company was able to successfully raise $2.8 million and is currently expanding into international markets.
