What attracts venture capitalists to fund certain start-ups and not others? Many of today's leading medical device and biotech companies began as start-ups funded by VCs who took a risk. This seminar will provide a forum for discussion of how lower-risk strategies combined with successful commercial marketing plans can be achieved to help entrepreneurs attract the capital vital to a start-up's success. Members of the business community who have played critical roles in bringing start-ups to fruition will provide key expertise on this subject.
Highlights that will be discussed by this panel include:
- The real-life experiences of CEOs in growing an early-stage company
- What criteria do investors use to evaluate a biotech or device start-up?
- At what stage should VCs be approached?
- What concerns VCs when considering their next investment?
- How important is it for the start-up to have other products in the pipeline?
- What role does patent protection play in the consideration of funding?
- How to differentiate your start-up to make it attractive for funding
