Client's Testimonial

“"Network access & unique understanding"”

Next Phase were instrumental in our early fundraising efforts. Steve was able to unlock the doors of many investors with a specific interest in early stage gene therapy biotechs that would have otherwise been cold and unknown to us. In parallel, he has attracted our industry leading “raise team”, consisting of some of the most reputable advanced therapy executives with experience within the ATMP space. Thanks to Steve's network access and unique understanding of this space, we were able to significantly accelerate the development of our business to help improve the quality of life for those affected by rare diseases.
