CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Many large companies depend on successful strategic alliance to develop and to maintain ever-expanding product portfolio. These alliances are developed to achieve common goals and objectives; for example, large pharmaceutical companies use in-licensing deals to tap into expertise of small biotech companies and in return they offer, much needed, capital, development expertise, and market insight to the smaller companies.
While strategic alliances are an important solution to maintaining and managing a successful product portfolio, competition to secure an alliance partner is increasing.
