History

Guidepoint was founded by Albert Sebag, Ph.D., who started as a bioorganic chemist,[3] where he helped to develop anti-estrogen drugs for treatment of certain cancers. Sebag then moved on to law, earning his J.D. from Boston College Law School. During his legal career, he focused on intellectual property and biotechnology litigation for generic pharmaceutical clients. This experience eventually led Sebag to begin a matching service for oncology patients called Clinical Advisors.[4] Launched in 2003, Clinical Advisors matched cancer patients with the clinical trial that best suited their case.[5]

As Clinical Advisors expanded their network to include expertise in additional healthcare areas, the company progressed into other industries and sectors. In 2007, the company changed its name to Guidepoint Global to reflect this expanded business model.[6] In 2009, Guidepoint Global acquired Vista Research from Standard & Poor’s, a subsidiary of the company formerly called The McGraw-Hill Companies,[7][8] an expert network company that was active in Asia and had a strong network of experts in other industries such as technology and telecom.[9]

Shortly after rebranding as Guidepoint, “the expert at finding expertise,” and premiering a new logo and website,[10] Guidepoint acquired Innosquared, a Germany-based expert network firm. According to FINAlternatives, Guidepoint is “the only global expert network with a large research team based in Germany and one of only two with research locations in the EMEA region.”[11]

Business Model

Clients use Guidepoint as a resource to find answers to specific industry questions that might only be answered by industry and subject-matter experts. The company essentially operates as a matchmaking service, connecting its users to recruited experts in the field they are looking to learn more about. Experts are categorized into six main industry sectors: Healthcare; Financial and Business Services; Consumer Goods and Services; Energy, Industrials, and Basic Materials; Tech, Media, and Telecom; and Legal and Regulatory.[citation needed]

Services are subscription-based and include hourly phone consultations, in-person events, teleconferences, surveys, custom research reports, and a monthly healthcare data offering called Guidepoint TRACKER, which features data on market share in the therapeutics and medical device sectors,[12] such as the US Breast Implant market.[13]Experts are pre-screened and required to adhere to compliance policies and procedures
