Henko Capital Partners, Spanish private equity firm, has invested in BioClever to drive its international growth. Henko seeks to position BioClever as a comprehensive partner for clinical trials and research.

BioClever is one of the leading independent providers of Contract Research Organization (CRO) services in Spain.

BioClever has a portfolio of over 60 blue-chip clients, including top global pharma companies, manufacturer of medical devices, biotech companies and some of the leading Spanish pharma companies.

The CRO sector shows a continued growth trend due to strong R&D investment to develop new drugs, an increasing complexity of clinical research and the need for more flexibility. These factors are fostering demand for outsourcing in clinical research. BioClever also has relevant credentials in the field of medical devices, a relevant growth vector for CROs in the coming years due to new European regulations.

Alongside supporting its national growth plans, Henko aims to grow with BioClever in international markets as well. BioClever and Henko see an opportunity to combine the flexible and collaborative approach of local CROs with execution capabilities across main European markets.
