Mission Bio is a Silicon Valley-based company that has developed an instrument for cell separation and labelling for sequencing.
The company asked us to identify prospective distribution and service partners across Japan, Korea and China to help it ramp up sales in the region. We first assessed a long-list of potential partners in genomics, oncology and life science R&D. We then met and qualified these companies and recommended a short-list of the best candidates.
We organised an Asia visit for Mission Bio to meet the management of our recommended partners and supported discussions and initial negotiations. Following the Asia visit, Mission Bio appointed partners from the recommended shortlists in each country.
