- An inexperienced entrepreneur and experienced physician inventor were having difficulty positioning their clinical stage therapeutic discovery, which repurposed a known drug for the treatment of certain sleep disorders. Ripple helped to identify the critical technical question to answer, supported the physician to design the enabling proof of principal study, and helped the team apply for and secure a state proof of principal grant to support the study.
- A pre-clinical, virtually operated pharmaceutical company founded by experienced pharmaceutical business leaders needed additional capable hands to manage an escalating list of priority projects, identify other funding opportunies, and to coordinate the work of external CROs and consultants.. Engaging Ripple Management has enabled the company to advance its preclinical candidate, identify additional funding sources such as the Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Program grant, and to recruit key technical and legal experts.
