Features & Benefits


Maximize your business development and licensing efforts.

Pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies and investment firms are entering into alliances and joint ventures at an ever-increasing pace. Whether the target is a new drug, new capital or strategic investment, business development and licensing deals provide growth opportunities for companies of all sizes. As the rate of transactions increases, so does the number of hours and resources needed to conduct due diligence

Life Sciences professionals use VDRPro to raise capital, evaluate opportunities, expedite due diligence, manage alliances and capture institutional knowledge. Intralinks will help you exchange critical information with internal and external parties throughout the life of your deal. Using Intralinks eliminates the hassles of trying to email large files, only to have them bounce back or be at risk for unauthorized and unsecured distribution. In addition, Intralinks enables you to eliminate the costs, headaches and the security risks of faxing, printing and overnight mail delivery. Post-deal, Intralinks can be used to support alliance management and the post-merger integration process.
