Kasocio arose from a passionate desire to show that the industry average of sales performance is no longer an acceptable benchmark for biopharmaceutical clients.
We combine an innate understanding of the biopharmaceutical industry with behavioural insight, strategy and communication skills. We are entirely focused on innovative, creative and effective ways to help our clients improve the probability of commercial success for all of their products.
Having worked for some of the largest biopharmaceutical companies and strategy agencies in the world, we had seen the extremes of pharmaceutical product development and commercialisation – from amazing to mediocre. In general, though, we just saw the obvious and undifferentiated. What really struck us was the frequent dissonance between the molecule’s potential and what was realised in the market. This got us thinking about what we could change for our clients and so we created Kasocio.
Our teams are comprised of passionate innovators with a unique and valuable blend of experience gained from working within both the biopharmaceutical, FMCG and consulting industries. This ensures that all solutions are differentiating, compelling and implementable. With people in North America, Europe and Asia, we offer a global perspective, helping clients to succeed in both mature and emerging markets.
