We are scientists, finance and marketing specialists, bioinformatics experts, and experienced PhD consultants that listen, learn, and work tirelessly to deliver on our commitments to clients.
Our talent works hand-in-hand with researchers to analyze report insights and secure best-fit funding and partnerships.
Meet our CEO
“The future of science has never been brighter.
But the path to get there has become dangerously complicated because of federal budget cuts that U.S. biomedical research has failed to recover over the past decade. And this downturn is forecasted to continue over the next decade.
Science First Partnerships is building an operating system to fix our broken funding structures.
We use machine learning to match scientists to billions of dollars in research funding from pharmaceutical firms and federal government, all off the backbone of our proprietary software and funder databases.
This scalable approach is diversifying funding for entire research institutions. We collaborate closely with top leadership to build smart, resilient long-term plans for fund growth.
Science First Partnerships believes that every single scientist in the U.S. should have access to data-driven matching to all potential funding sources. We are making this vision a reality today.”

LAUNCHHOUSE MEMBER SPOTLIGHT – BATULA ZAIDI
I am a PhD scientist trained in how to use big data to improve human health. Science took a massive hit in federal funding around 2005, and that downturn is forecasted to continue through 2028. The good news is, and what scientists typically don’t know, is that 2019 is actually flush with funding opportunities – they just have to diversify and adapt. I started Science First Partnerships because we need a scalable solution from the private sector to use data-driven approaches to matching scientists to funders so research institutions have a solid plan for stable, longterm growth.
