Biotech companies face a unique set of challenges. In IP development stages, Biotechs consume vast amounts of capital, so early investor trust is crucial. As the IP moves to reality and approaches the market, IPO and finally M&A activities become the focus; here again, trust is the key to success – in security of the IP, the value of the offering, and the solidity of the company. Intralinks has built a reputation of trust in the Biotech community with a history of providing secure spaces and transactional tools for raising start-up capital; for keeping assets valuable and investor-ready; for taking companies public; and for exchanging critical, sensitive M&A information. Intralinks helps build Biotechs by protecting their most valuable assets along every step of the journey. We stand behind Biotechs, so their ideas can move forward.
