Inova Software was founded in 2010 by Gilles Toulemonde, David Carteret and Fritz Eisenhart by merging Inova and Vertical*i. The merger combined Vertical*i’s business development and alliance management expertise with Inova’s experience in strategic innovation software. The newly merged company turned its focus to creating a software that would help life sciences companies find external innovations.
Since then, we’ve worked exclusively in the life sciences, learning the pains and challenges of this industry inside and out. We’re constantly developing new partnerships and new features to help biopharma companies work together better.
For example, we have a strategic partnership with the Biotechnology Innovation Organization, organizer of the largest biopharma partnering event of the year. Thanks to this partnership, our CRM is prepopulated with company and contact information from BIO partnering meetings. The two systems are synchronized in real-time, providing our users with always up to date information and helping them find the right partners.
Our team is made up of 50 people hailing from over 15 different countries. With a small, but diverse team, we are flexible, agile and innovative. Inova can be found all over the world, with our headquarters in Lyon and offices in New York and Tokyo.
