Big Data Business SciLeads Targets Customers in Global Scientific Market

Belfast-based SciLeads is growing its team threefold and also enhancing its lead generation and marketing intelligence platform, which is used by a growing number of global customers in the scientific industry.

Invest Northern Ireland has offered support towards the R&D investment, as well as the recruitment of seven additional staff by SciLeads, three of which are already in post.

SciLeads’ tool enables pharma and biotech companies to select the best external scientists to partner with on their clinical trials. The detailed information SciLeads pulls together on the scientist helps a company decide whether a researcher is a good fit for the clinical trial.

Speaking about the investments, Daniel McRitchie, SciLeads CEO, explained:“The global pharma market is expected to grow to $1.5 trillion over the next three years. This represents a substantial market opportunity for new and innovative services of technology, such as our market intelligence platform.

“SciLeads benefits all sizes of biotech companies from a single person firm to multibillion-dollar multinationals. We have achieved good market traction in the USA and Europe during our first two years of trading and with support from Invest NI now aim to build the capability within the business to attract new clients across the world.”

SciLeads has created a unique big data set of dedicated scientific information, using proprietary software and algorithms that aggregate information from online sources. This platform offers easy search and alert services specifically for the scientific market.

Susan O’Kane, Invest NI Eastern Regional Manager said: “SciLeads aims to be the most comprehensive source of information on professional research scientists and we are pleased to be offering assistance to support this young firm’s ongoing development.

“Big data is an area of global potential and the research & development activities will increase the functionality and user experience of SciLeads’ platform, enabling it to maximise its lead generation capabilities. The seven high quality software development and sales related jobs are also positive news, creating dedicated resources focused on growing SciLeads’ international customer base.”

Invest NI has offered SciLeads support towards its job creation and R&D investments, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The business has also benefited from trade support to explore opportunities across the USA and Europe as well as Proof of Concept grants from TechStart NI to launch its product to market.
