Cambridge company CBL had developed a new technology that could spray dry vaccines, allowing them to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration.
The technology had huge potential, but the challenge was how to reach and influence high net-worth individuals and encourage them to invest in a new vaccine technology.
How we did it?
Holdsworth Associates developed a communications campaign that would reach the hearts and minds of potential investors.
A story was created based on ‘developing world first’ market strategy. It clearly showed how the technology could save the lives of 10 million children within the existing aid budgets by removing the wastage in current vaccine programmes.
An animation was created for use by the broadcast media, and to embed online to explain the technology to potential investors.
- Widespread international exposure, including extensive coverage on the broadcast news programmes
- The Minister for overseas development spoke on the subject, citing our vaccine argument
- As a result CBL attracted the largest ever Angel Syndicate (high net worth individuals) and millions of pounds of funding
