'We particularly value the delivery, advice and ability to consult.'
Life Sciences Hub Wales (the Hub), came to KTS Owens Thomas in 2014, needing both financial and business expertise to help establish itself as the nerve centre of the Welsh life sciences community.
The Hub’s purpose is to support life sciences businesses with start-up guidance, precision partnering, referrals, market intelligence, funding and investment opportunities and NHS Wales engagement. Whilst also providing access to dedicated facilities, events, promotion, and networking opportunities.
KTS Owens Thomas provides a ‘3D Accountancy’ (3DA) service, getting to really know a business and producing solutions that ultimately help clients grow, something which appealed considerably to the Hub in its early days of operations.
Following a 3DA consultation, a solid relationship was forged with the Hub and we remain today both their ‘go to’ trusted business advisor and financial services provider. Carol Warburton, director at KTS Owens Thomas, now attends the Hub Board to help advise and support growth strategies. Life Sciences Hub Wales use our following services:
