Owl Africa

Owl Africa was conceived in 2012 by pharmaceutical industry stakeholders looking for a way to visualise all the data which was available to them. The stakeholders realized that to fully understand the impact of the data, the different data sets available to them would need to be interrogated in order to develop solutions that were lacking in the market.  So was born Owl Africa, a solution that proved to be so successful that they were approached by major pharmaceutical companies to implement this solution at large.


Working together to take medical innovation to market.
