Early-stage life science investing usually entails significant risk – not only in terms of research and development but also regulatory, commercialization and reimbursement. While many companies work past family & friend rounds, startups must assess and pursue various alternatives – and associated expectations – which may best serve their value proposition and stage of development – from grants, angel funding, venture capital, corporate partnerships, philanthropies, institutional investors to NPOs and new web-driven, equity accredited investing portals (adjunct to concept of “crowdfunding”). Join us for an overview of financing options, select entrepreneur stories as well as work group exercises to make this a practical, value-added session on financing early-stage life science companies.
