OUR SERVICES

SMEs are the backbone of the Indian Pharma sector, but, more than 99% of them stay small, never breaking into the 250+ Cr club. Just ambition is not enough. As a SME, its difficult to attract top quality talent or get access to the connections that the big companies have.

Avant Consulting with its deep understanding of the Pharma industry, can help you bridge the gap between your ambitions and in-house capabilities. We provide high quality professional guidance in the core areas of strategy, regulatory, marketing, sales and training during the vital growth stage, while simultaneously helping you develop these competencies in-house. We have an extensive network in exports markets to support growth ambitions beyond the national borders.     

For non-core areas, we have experienced and vetted third party service providers who cater to your growing need, such as SAP implementation, sales force automation, digital marketing, advertising, greenfield projects, etc. 

If your ambitions are BIG, we can help you achieve it.
