‘’Immediate access to medical professionals, capitalizing on the time-value of market data is a major competitive advantage.”
Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
InCrowd, Inc. (http://www.incrowdnow.com), the first company to bring real-time market research methodologies to the life sciences industry, has secured Series A Seed Funding led by Launchpad Venture Group and Walnut Venture Associates. InCrowd will use the funds to drive further technology development while expanding the marketing of its unique real-time research platform in the healthcare sector.
“Our goals in the coming year are focused on adding top talent to our team and expanding our portfolio of real-time data tools,” said Janet Kosloff, InCrowd’s Founder and CEO. “We have seen an increase in client requests for international projects, this spurred us to add global capabilities just a couple months after we initially launched our platform. Going forward we plan to continue developing our on-demand tools for global real-time data access.”
InCrowd has successfully created a technology platform that connects pharmaceutical, medical device and life science companies with Crowds of screened and targeted health care professionals. Unlike traditional survey tools, this specialized crowdsourcing can provide results within minutes to marketing professionals who need fast answers to critical questions. The on-demand structure of the platform ensures easy and rapid question creation, while the single question format facilitates rapid Crowd response and insight.
“Having immediate access to medical professionals, capitalizing on the time-value of market data is a major competitive advantage in the extremely fast-moving healthcare and life sciences industries,” said Jean Hammond, a well-known technology investor and member of Launchpad Venture Group. “As the industry need for fast and accurate market data continues to grow, InCrowd will be well positioned to meet the demand.”
