We’re a Top Workplaces USA and Boston Globe Top Places to Work award winner!

We have assembled a world-class team with strategic and operational expertise on the business side of life sciences. By pooling our experience, know-how, resources and networks, we share an enviable knowledge base with each other and our clients.

Working for a life science company can be a dynamic and rewarding experience. Our consultants have the unique opportunity to split their time across several such companies – with stability, flexibility and the full support of the Danforth team to call upon as needed.

The Danforth Way


We are drawn to the meaningful work of life science innovators. We embrace their mission and relish the opportunity to play a role in their success. Our clients are groundbreakers and leaders in the field.


We own our client roles from the “inside” and work together to achieve shared goals. We have a seat at the table with scientific founders, CEOs, board members, heads of operations and their teams.


We may work independently, but we make it routine to host internal workshops, share best practices and learn from each other. We offer opportunities to be mentored or paired with more tenured consultants to support career growth.


We value the ability to adapt a fulfilling career to our lifestyles. When we’re not serving clients we are marathoners, farmers, boaters, yogis and classroom volunteers. Consultants have full say over assignments and hours.
