Healthtech & subsectors

Hampleton‘s Healthtech practice is headed by Jonathan Simnett and Dr. Jan Eiben. Our team’s relationships with investors, acquirers and entrepreneurs spans the globe from the Americas, through EMEA and into the Asia-Pacific region. It includes the most innovative vendors of relevant technologies such as AI, AR/VR, data analytics, computer vision, connected care, diagnostics, HRM, imaging systems, sensor technology, software, and much more.

The Hampleton team members have many years of experience advising companies in health services, medical technology, and pharmaceutical industries. With international experience in healthcare, life science, insurance and government, they have led transactions in archiving, electronic data interchange, governance, risk management, compliance, records and back office management systems.

We have worked for and closed transactions with companies such as Blue Shield, Certara, FBGS, Greenlight, Neoteryx and SAGlobal.

Hampleton advised the shareholders of Berlin-based BaseCase, creators of a data visualisation SaaS platform, in the sale of their company to the New Jersey-headquartered global leader in regulatory science, Certara, an EQT portfolio company. Bringing together a niche technology vendor and the right buyer with a full suite of synergistic products and services requires in-depth industry knowledge and experience. The BaseCase / Certara transaction highlights Hampleton’s understanding, creativity and capabilities in finding the best matches in healthtech, enterprise software and SaaS.

Featured transaction

The sale of BaseCase to Certara

Hampleton Partners advised on the sale of Germany’s BaseCase data visualisation software as a service (SaaS) company to US-based Certara, the global leader in model-informed drug development and regulatory science. BaseCase‘s interactive platform improves how life science companies communicate and present that value, whether to C-suite executives, physicians or healthcare providers.

By integrating content creation with sales enablement, it allows users to quickly create and personalize a visual value proposition around a drug or device’s ROI and business case.
