Working with CBG as a client

Why should I work with CBG?

Our consulting arm offers clients a cost effective means to access cutting-edge scientific perspective, informed and practical external advice, and engagement with our best-in-breed membership and expert advisory network. Teams are comprised of young professional members providing a unique mix of strong medical, engineering, scientific, business, and legal expertise.

Do I have to pay to for the services?

CBG offers expert advised, professionally managed and contracted Biotech and Digital Health consulting projects. We are consistently retained by our region's top Biotech and Digital Health companies. All consulting fees are utilized to compensate our consultant teams and to promote CBG operations.

What would be expected of me as a client?

In the beginning of the project, you will define the scope of the project together with the project manager. You should expect to meet with the team once every two weeks, either in person or by phone/teleconference, for status updates. Typically, CBG teams deliver an expert-reviewed mid-project deliverable and a final deliverable. This format will be adjusted according to the needs of the client and will be judged on a case-by-case basis.
