The vision of Clinical Maestro™ was born out of a combination of love and frustration. Developed and nurtured by financial and clinical business operations executives with experience both on Sponsor and Provider sides, our founders, Anca and Paulo, believed there had to be a better way. With lots of great ideas and even more courage, they started Strategikon Pharma in San Rafael, California. Our name, Strategikon, comes from a famous strategy manual written by the Byzantine emperor Maurice. While the world of clinical trials is certainly different, the principles of defining and executing flexible strategies that are well matched to the challenges are applicable.
