Zinc Ahead

Life sciences companies use software developed by Zinc Ahead to help avoid regulatory and compliance mistakes in their promotional materials. Claims about new drugs need support from clinical data, and this Oxford firm’s software manages the flow of documents around these companies so the right people can check any claims made and sign them off. Founded in 2001 by James Brown and Zoe Cottrell, sales grew 39% a year from £2.7m in 2009 to £7.2m in 2012, based on winning more work from existing customers and expanding internationally.
