PICO Consultation Services

The Postdoc Industry Consultants (PICO) is a group of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows focused on providing pro bono, actionable business recommendations for bio- and health-related businesses. In exchange, PICO consultants broaden their business acumen and learn to apply their scientific problem-solving skills in a business-related capacity through consulting and monthly workshops provided by business professionals.

PICO consultants work 5-10 hours per week on consulting projects in addition to their full-time research commitments. A typical consulting project lasts 2-3 months with 2-3 specific deliverables provided by a team of 2-3 consultants. Projects types can include business plan drafting, company valuation, market research analysis, SBIR grant preparation, FDA regulatory assessments, price sensitivity analysis, product commercialization, patentability searches, and others. We are always looking for new projects, workshops, and consultants.
