Our Services

A key to our success lies in our knowledge and hands-on experience of 75+ years. We have a clear and distinct advantage in understanding the needs of the market.

Biotech, Medtech, Healthtech

We are passionate about helping biotech, medtech, and healthtech companies navigate the complex pathway to achieving real-world impact. We understand the product development journey from proof of concept to clinical trials, regulatory approval, and market acceptance.

Know-how and technology can solve many of the largest current and future societal challenges. Unfortunately, too many technologies do not make it across the ‘valley of death’ from the lab to a commercial product. We help to navigate this complex field, bringing together viewpoints and strategies from across innovation and implementation lifecycles.

Digital Health and Connected Care

Emerald has been at the forefront of digital health, medicine, and therapeutics, working with pioneering international technology companies, providers, and patients. Building digital health ecosystems and employing digital medicine and therapeutics has led to transformative person-centered connected care.

We have a deep understanding of the health applications, infrastructure elements, and the categories of screening, monitoring, and diagnostic tools required for a connected healthcare ecosystem. This enables us to help businesses and organizations dedicated to improving people’s lives by using better tools and new working methods.

Data and Informatics

Turning clinical evidence and patient-reported data into intelligence for actionable insights is critical to realizing transformative patient-centered healthcare, with improved outcomes. Our capabilities arise from combined international experience in research, data analysis, and outcomes informatics. We believe data is a tangible asset not only to effect change but to improve the valuation of a business. We also work to develop data as a product for commercialization.

We help develop new strategies to enable the commercialization of innovative technology derived from scientific research. The involvement of scientists, including faculty, postdocs, and graduate students, is crucial for the transformation of scientific knowledge and technology into commercialized products and services.


We affiliate and collaborate with industry leaders who are building vital elements of connected health systems including:

  • Smart, flexible strategies to improve technologies, processes, and patient experiences.

  • Use of big data to enable health plans to provide more value to members and strengthen member support.


Choosing the right support from investors can have a massive impact on the trajectory of a business. Investment in a start-up or scale-up can include working in an accelerator environment rich with expertise, experience, and non-dilutive and dilutive funding sources. Investors power innovation and help in job creation by supporting sustainable products and services. Using our international network of accelerators and investors we:
