ABOUT THE INDUSTRY PARTNER

GP InnoVentures are a community-based drug development partner with a rich and diverse SMO network in Australia.

With access to a unique network of GP Investigators and patient populations, and best-in-class technology platform partners, GP InnoVentures offers end-to-end clinical trials services to local and international pharmaceutical, biotech, digital health and clinical research organisations.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

  • Opportunity to collaborate with the CEO to build this from the ground up
  • Ability to create a first of it’s growth hacking recruitment approach
  • To work on a community-based platform for clinical trial recruitment
  • Long term impact on enabling more clinical trials in Australia
  • Use a data-driven and experimentation approach to create a marketing and recruitment approach for clinical trials

RESEARCH TO BE CONDUCTED

  • GP InnoVentures aim to position their network as a responsible, dependable, and efficient host of clinical trials in Australia. The single most significant challenge of running a clinical trial is to assure timely recruitment. GP InnoVentures will access these trial participants through community clinics. GP InnoVentures will build its competitive advantage through the strength of its network, Data Analytics, cutting edge technology, and the ability to recruit and retain.
  • GP InnoVentures aims to focus on recruitment in two different ways.
  • The first approach is to follow a Silicon Valley and start-up model of “growth hacking”. The goal of growth hacking strategies is generally to acquire as many users or customers as possible while spending as little as possible.
  • The second approach is to build a “interested” community in partnerships with Not-for-profits and Associations focussed on specific therapeutic areas (e.g. Diabetes Australia).
  • The goal is to conduct multiple experiments, create a framework and test the validity of different approaches to creating traction for both the approaches
  • The first step is to select a range of metrics that will work for the first and second approach. We have selected about 10 metrics or so and we will be using this as a starting point.
  • The second is to focus on a specific community (diabetes) and test the various ideas including offline, online and other approaches. This will include A/B testing, data collection, understanding how cohorts will perform.
  • The third step is to refine this approach to enable a community to showcase interest in clinical trials and join the GP InnoVentures Community.
  • The fourth step is to replicate this across other communities and show case-framework and approach that is replicable and scalable.
