Make a business plan before you take the leap

Business Plan for Medical Innovation

A robust business plan provides a clear roadmap to achieve commercial success and clearly articulates a lifescience technology’s value proposition and projected adoption trajectory.

A compelling business plan is the foundation to achieve durable differentiation by outlining for investors and the company alike the pathway for an innovation to realize forecasts, capture market share and maximize ROI. Companies with a carefully constructed business plan are more likely to achieve their targets within the projected budget as the steps are clearly outlined. Clear market analysis with the anticipated target market ensures that the innovation under development will meet or even anticipate market needs.  Confirmation of market needs is an iterative process, as market trends evolve with competitive product offerings and technology advancements.

Early stage angel, venture capital and corporate investors alike pursue medical technology innovators with a clear, thoroughly developed strategy that fully considers market potential, the competitive opportunity, and prepares for anticipated potential hurdles to adoption. Furthermore, a company’s business plan should be regularly updated to reflect changing markets, product lines and company objectives over time.

Essential to guiding a successful company and product launch, a well-defined Business Plan includes market segmentation, competitive positioning and development of a robust medical device business model with assumption-driven financial projections. Realistic capital needs are identified per outlined development requirements. Metrics provided by an outline of a sustainable growth strategy with well-defined milestones can further help insure follow-on funding for the medical device startup.
