Who are we?

Xcube.bio story

Our times are incredible times of biopharma innovation. Undrugable targets become drugable. New therapeutic modalities emerge. Expectations change for many hopeless patients with difficult-to-treat diseases. It takes thousands of agile, nimble and focused biopharma organizations to lead the development of thousands of promising therapeutics.

How are all these innovative drugs going to reach patients? Go-to-market options largerly remain the same. Innovators sell or license to a large pharmaceutical organization or take the risky and lonely bet to morph a R&D organization into a commercial powerhouse.

Xcube.bio was founded on the ground that go-to-market options must evolve, being also more agile, nimble and focused. Ultimately, we aim to connect efficiently each therapeutic innovation with any patient in need.
We strongly believe innovators ambition to get a direct access to their patients should not stop short of commercial hurdles. Through a unique blend of hands-on advisory, technology and financial engineering, xcube.bio offers an incubator-like approach unlocking innovator commercial journey. We are committed to delivering the innovator’s ecosystem to overcome knowledge, organizational and financial barriers at commercial stage.
