Class 5 Capabilities & Services

Class 5 Inc. specializes in commercialization solutions for the global life science industry, including medical manufacturers, healthcare providers and distributors. We offer concrete solutions to established medical companies, as well as emerging growth companies and startups. Class 5 has worked with companies seeking to expand their market share, US companies seeking to distribute internationally, and international companies launching products in the US. From development to global launch, we have the skills to help your company optimize its competitive advantage and enhance its bottom line.

Class 5 International Focus

The US is the largest medical and healthcare market in the world, accounting for $2.2 trillion in annual expenditures or nearly 50% of the global market. The US medical industry consists of more than 750,000 physicians and 5,200 hospitals, accounting for 3.8 million inpatient visits and 20 million outpatient visits daily. The process of commercializing a new medical device for the US market is becoming more complex. Class 5 has the experience to navigate the numerous milestones of a successful US product launch, ranging from obtaining the appropriate regulatory clearances, to conducting engineering design review and assessment and to establishing and managing a US sales and distribution team. We have the personal contacts, business networks and expertise to facilitate rapid market access, mitigate risk and meet your product launch objectives.
