Event details:


Starting a Life Science company can be tough.  There are plenty of challenges to starting any type of Biomedical company: choosing the right form of entity; developing a IP portfolio, advisors and early-in employees; bootstrapping until your first investors appear, then lasting sources of capital; knowing how much R&D and developing smart strategies for marketing, selling and managing channels.

Come hear a panel of seasoned entrepreneurs and strategists tell you what they learned when starting, running or counseling several Life Science startups. The panel will walk you thru’ the creative steps and calculated risks you may have to consider taking to get your Biomedical startup off the ground especially when the odds are pitched heavily against you. The panel will touch upon how to navigate the regulatory maze, enforce decisions from an indecisive and reluctant FDA. It will address questions such as when VCs talk about "market conditions," what do they mean?  And more.
