Case Studies


An early stage company was having difficulty with business development and partnering after nearly a year of trying. They brought in a Longfellow Associates consultant to evaluate product-market fit, pricing, and general strategy. At our consultant's recommendation, the company pivoted the technology to a market where it fits into hospital practices and where it produces a more significant value for the company, patient, and hospital. The changes led to interest from larger corporations looking to foster relationships with the startup.

Scientific Support

​A venture-backed medical device company encountered scientific challenges while developing their product that brought the technologies validity into question. The company brought in a Longfellow Associates' consultant to evaluate the product and guide development. The product was significantly modified resulting in an improved solution to the initial problem. Their product is currently in further development and has cleared the past limitations.

Regulatory, Clinical, and Quality Systems

​A company with deep subject matter expertise developed a product outside of their normal business scope. They reached out to Longfellow Associates to provide multi-area support across all of the points where they do not have direct subject knowledge. Their product is working towards FDA approval.
