Catailyst expedites drug discovery and development within Biopharma companies by offering cost-effective access to precise scientific and business information via a web-based portal, customizable alerts and modern visualizations. 

Catailyst has combined automation and artificial intelligence to understand scientific, clinical and business announcements from various public information sources, such as press releases, SEC filings, trial registrations to create actionable and searchable data points. Catailyst has recently launched a database and data analytics platform to provide access to such data. The company has also developed several real-time alerts and integrated modern visualization.

The Company brings a comprehensive solution for Biotech and Pharma business development teams, clinical development team, investment bankers, investors, and life science consultants to track drug development, monitor competition, follow market trends and inform about recent developments of drug candidates and approved drugs. We use our own extractive AI and NLP methods to generate data instead of repetitive human labor. This sets us apart from competitors who rely on large numbers of employees for data generation.


Expensive and time consuming to find accurate data within life science industry.

Today, business leaders are constantly asking questions and challenging their decisions to gain competitive advantage in the marketplace. The cost of finding accurate data to support a decision is currently very high and labor intensive due to overwhelming data flow and lack of an integrated data source within the life science industry. Often executives, clinicians, researchers, investors, consultants, bankers are missing critical information.

Today, companies may manage these situations with multiple subscriptions, or a series of internet searches to assemble information. Manual data verification and curation become highly time-consuming, causing delays in business decisions.

To this end, small and medium size companies are most challenged.


The Solution: Catailyst, Disrupting The Drug Discovery And Development With Data Science: AI, ML, NLP & Predictive Analytics

Catailyst has created a single integrated platform for business, scientific and clinical information and makes it easier for access.

  • Our AI technology reads and analyzes different forms of texts published everyday
  • We have built strong capabilities of extracting relevant texts from large documents such as SEC filings
  • We created validated and established methods of identifying and categorizing relevant data points without human interventions
  • In addition, Catailyst has added business process automation to handle large quantity of information flow
  • By implementing such a process, the Company processes 500+ press releases, 100+ clinical trials related information, and hundreds of SEC filings everyday
  • A patent related to such invention was filed to USPTO in 2020
  • PCT applications were filed in certain countries from EU, Canada and India. No patents have been granted.

Today, Catailyst database is utilized for many major decision supports such as strategic priority discussion, deal negotiations, clinical trial designs, business continuity planning and more. Some example data points are below.

  • Pipeline by indication
  • Conference abstracts
  • Competitive intelligence and market landscape
  • Future timeline
  • Deal Terms

Business Model

The company is currently offering two products. SAAS monthly subscriptions to the database and daily/weekly customizable alerts in a B2B business model.

  • Database
  • Alerts
  • Visualization

Target customers are from three major sectors:

  • Executives, business development team & clinicians within Biotech and Pharma
  • Consultants and investment bankers
  • Investors and business analyst


Catailyst addressable markets intersect Life Science Analytics and Artificial Intelligence in Life Sciences. Both are rapidly growing markets.
