SVA Bio-Ops has announced its one-year anniversary as a premier Emerging Life Science (ELS) consulting firm.
In 2017, SVA Consulting, LLC and Bio-Ops, Inc. joined forces under the new ELS consulting brand, SVA Bio-Ops. The mission of the SVA Bio-Ops team at SVA Consulting is to partner with leaders of ELS companies to reduce risk and manage the chaos as they transition from clinical-development to being commercially ready for first product launch and subsequent success in-market.
As biotechnology and device firms travel down the clinical and regulatory path, positive news brings on a deluge of decisions and challenges. Leadership attention is already consumed by clinical trials, product development, regulatory approval and raising money. On top of that, leadership needs to build all of the functions, processes and systems needed to manufacture, distribute and market an approved product. The team typically isn’t at full strength and many people who have operated these business functions have never had to build them from scratch. It's risky and that’s where SVA Bio-Ops comes in.
Al Swarts, founder of Bio-Ops, has been instrumental in this joint venture. He has over 40 years of experience leading life science organizations from inception to market launch and beyond. He provides clients the value of his many lessons learned to help them avoid pitfalls and make timely, well-informed commercialization strategy and implementation decisions. Andrew DeMarco is the ELS Group Leader. Andrew has over 20 years of business and consulting experience, with specific expertise in Medical Affairs, launching new businesses and business/IT integration. Al, Andrew and the entire SVA Consulting team understand the reality of building a company on a tight timeline and have proven methodologies to do it.
“As SVA Bio-ops, we’ve been privileged to work with close to a dozen biotech and medtech companies over the last year. It’s gratifying to hear clients who are driven to impact patient lives say ‘we couldn’t have done it without SVA Bio-Ops,’” states Andrew DeMarco, Principal with SVA Consulting.
