  • About Us

    N2VATE consultancy is an outsourced business and product management service to offer a platform that is focused on directing the product life cycle, from concept to market.

    It draws on the founder's 30 years of direct experience of inventing, designing, launching, branding and marketing scientific instruments and medical devices and products. In addition, N2VATE has developed a strong close network of strategic partners, who bring many decades of combined experience in the fields of expertise required to successfully develop and launch your product idea. N2VATE does not act as an incubator referral service, nor do we burden clients as a 'middle-man'. Instead, we contract directly with you as your business development and product manager for a portion of, or the entire concept to market cycle.

    Our strategic partners consist of several companies that focus on funding and various business development strategies; a previous FDA executive for consultation with regulatory affairs; experienced legal and intellectual property counsel; several established product development and engineering, prototyping, and testing companies. Our team also includes several contract manufacturing firms, including tooling and production in Asia. See 'Our Services' for further information.
