President, CYTO Consulting
Odilo is the founder and president of CYTO Consulting. Odilo started CYTO Consulting in 2014 with the vision to help international life science companies with the successful commercialization of novel technologies. Having first-hand experience with the very successful launch of the world’s first analytical microfluidics platform, he focuses on helping international companies to avoid common mistakes and to maximize their return on investment.

Entering the US market is a significant challenge. While the overall approach seems straightforward enough and may look good on paper, the real issues arise when starting to implement the commercialization plan. For many small to mid-size companies this can be a daunting task. CYTO Consulting has been helping clients to de-risk the US market entry for more than 7 years.
In this seminar, we will discuss the practical aspects of expanding a business to the US market and invite international life science companies to establish a presence in the US. Especially in the Boston/Cambridge area - the biggest biotech hub in the world. It’s closer than you think!
