The UK’s life-sciences sector, worth more than £70bn to the country’s economy, is one of the most productive in the world. The sector is innovative but also highly competitive, meaning that marketing communication strategies must be executed precisely for products to succeed.

Huumun’s core business is the delivery of effective strategies to the world’s leading life-sciences companies,  enhancing engagement between pharmaceutical businesses and customers, so that information about even the most complex medical product is interesting, accessible and easy to digest. The result is more meaningful customer relationships, with healthcare professionals finding it easier to make prescribing decisions, based on better access to accurate data and information.

Funding for a wider impact

The Reading-based business, established in 2003, combines strategic communications experience with smart digital technologies, specialist medical knowledge and data-science expertise. It is this unique blend of skills under one roof that differentiates Huumun in a crowded digital sector.

Founded by chief executive Paul Hartigan, the company has been growing organically and developing its customer base for the past 16 years. Having seen the positive impact of their work, the members of the management team began to expand their offering and serve more clients with the help of a £2m loan from BOOST&Co in 2019.
