Facilitating Global Innovation & Partnering

Industry Expertise


Since its founding in 1979, Technology Catalysts International (TCI) has conducted specialized consulting for pharmaceutical companies. Our clients vary in size and specialty; from big pharma to generics to drug delivery to biologics. We have seen the industry change its focus from small molecules to biologics, from the relatively simple development of controlled release oral solid dosage forms to developing complex devices that monitor biological stimuli and deliver actives in response.

TCI regularly monitors ongoing developments in the pharmaceutical and drug delivery industries to provide the most up-to-date information to our clients.  TCI realizes that pharmaceutical companies of all tiers are pressured to continually innovate, increase growth, and accelerate time to market, while also maintaining quality and increasing efficiency. With over three decades of consulting experience, TCI has assisted numerous pharmaceutical companies by providing custom consulting to suit their individual needs.
