i2e’s BD & Licensing (BD&L) offerings help BD&L decision makers take the right decisions right from evaluating high-value licensing opportunities to identifying potential acquisition targets, conducting business and product due diligence. 

Leveraging real-world data and predictive modeling, we quantify unmet needs to highlight indications with significant commercial potential. We forecast peak sales, develop pricing scenarios, and assess competitive dynamics to value assets and enhance deal structuring. 

To articulate asset value, our analytics inform the development of compelling target product profiles and partnering materials, quantifying clinical differentiation and strategic market fit. 

We identify optimal partners through proprietary company matching algorithms and payer/KOL sentiment analysis. Our data quantifies potential synergy based on portfolio fit, risk tolerance, and capabilities. Prioritized outreach is enabled through target company briefings with clinical, commercial, and deal rationale insights. 

With our end-to-end solutions approach, BD teams can focus efforts on high-potential indications, assets, and partners to enhance pipeline expansion. We turn real-world evidence into actionable data to support evaluation, forecasting, packaging, outreach, and negotiations.

Partner identification and reach out

Selecting the right partners is critical for pharma business development and licensing teams seeking to drive pipeline growth through value-creating deals. However, with multiple influencing variables externally and internally, it is challenging to identify the ideal targets with the highest strategic fit and shared value potential. Accelerated deadlines further complicate partner prioritization before outreach.
