Engage with us

All the benefits of dedicated individual consultants, with the wider support of a global network.

Working with the experts

Our membership requires each consultant to operate at the top of their field, with a proven track record of local and international success. This allows us to work together in an atmosphere of mutual trust and confidentiality. We can confidently refer clients to each other and provide access to an extensive web of international contacts and resources. And if you use a Confidentiality Agreement with one of us, you can be sure that every other member is automatically bound by the same agreement.

Each member brings complementary skills and expertise to the commercialisation process. To find out more, visit the Who We Are page and feel free to contact whichever consultant has the right blend of skills and experience to match your needs. If your endeavour requires the expertise of more than one consultant, your Life Science New Zealand contact will co-ordinate their involvement on your behalf. Designed to minimise risk and maximise confidence, our approach combines all the benefits of dedicated individual consultants, with the wider support of a global network.
