Life Sciences Communication Platform Within3 Announces New Funding

In any discussion about life sciences today, the topic is bound to turn to the development of an effective vaccine for COVID-19. Many trials are underway, some already in phase three, which involves thousands of volunteers who have received the vaccine and need to communicate with health care professionals about their symptoms, side effects and any testing they’ve undergone. Underlying this process, there needs to be effective real-time communication platforms.

For life sciences companies to be successful, they need to engage with key stakeholders: this includes doctors, researchers, patients and health insurance companies. It’s not an easy prospect, as there are legal and ethical constraints involved in communicating healthcare information, and state and federal compliance of regulations must be observed. At the same time, communication needs to be open and swift.

“Engaging thousands of stakeholders spread across multiple time zones and languages means that the old way of hosting conversations—virtual or not—still poses massive logistical problems,” according to Within3, a life sciences communications platform provider.

Within3 recently announced that it has closed over $100 million in growth funding in a financing round that was led by Insight Partners and included participation from Silversmith Capital Partners. According to the company, the new round of funding will be used to accelerate product innovation, build infrastructure to outpace growing demand, and fuel international expansion.

“Global demand for our solution is surging at an unprecedented rate,” said Lance Hill, CEO of Within3, in a statement. “Life science companies are looking for virtual work solutions that exceed the level of engagement of traditional live interactions, meet all their compliance needs, and that will scale across the enterprise. They have found that solution with Within3.”

According to Within3, 20 out of the top 20 global pharmaceutical companies already use the company’s platform for global collaboration to bring drugs to market more quickly, publish clinical studies, host advisory boards, and engage virtually on business initiatives with multi-stakeholder involvement.
