Who We Are

We are Lithero…

Lithero is a diverse, Philadelphia-based tech company creating People-Centric Solutions for Life Sciences professionals.

We know Life Sciences.  We’ve lived it.

We’ve been in the room at 2 am, eyes red and shoulders slumped, scrambling to get the work done as another deadline falls.  We know how it feels to be chained to pen and paper through endless cycles of promotional review, when we could have been out there changing the world.

We are here for you.  And we’re going to get you home.

 

Our Mission

Get Life Science professionals back to saving lives by making promotional compliance review faster, cheaper, and more effective.

Our Values at Work

Integrity

We behave ethically and transparently in all situations. 

We are upfront and honest with our clients, our colleagues, and ourselves. 

We ensure that our UI and data policies are ethical and easily understood.

Impact

We create tech solutions that lower the costs of drug production for everyone.

We increase clients’ power over their data, their process, and their outcomes.

We deliver tangible value to our clients, investors, and employees.

People

We believe the purpose of AI technology is to serve the real needs of real people.

We seek out innovation and imagination in unexpected, underrepresented places.

We embrace challenge and diversity in the workplace.  It is our way of life.

 

Service

We invest time and money in the communities where we live and work.

 We embrace technology that serves people and improves the human experience.

We go above and beyond, putting others’ needs before our own, in order to do good.
