I am the founder and managing director of Scinopsis, a medical writing company based in France. Scinopsis is specialised in providing regulatory documents and medical communications to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries. I created the company in 2006 and today we have 15 permanent staff (including myself). I believe the keys to our success are the quality of the documents we provide to our clients and the friendly attitude of my team. This article describes why and how I created Scinopsis, how the company is organised, and the challenges I have encountered over the years.
