External Opportunity Portal

Capture external innovation opportunities

Many biopharma companies manage unsolicited proposals by collecting submissions on their corporate website and emailing them directly to the relevant department or therapeutic area. Unfortunately, this leaves submissions scattered and impossible to track.
Inova’s Opportunity Portal offers a simple, efficient way to build a repository of all external opportunities, sort through them and find the most interesting ones.
