Realities of Commercializing Life Sciences in 2014

Biotechnology start-ups have never faced a funding environment as difficult as we have today. Investing priorities have shifted toward late stage investments, while global financial uncertainty and a history of more failures than successes in biotechnology investing have reduced the amount of money available for early stage commercialization. How can the early stage biotechnology company adapt to face these challenges, especially with respect to pre-Venture Capital funding?

Three entrepreneurs will discuss the realities of the commercialization landscape in 2014. An inventor/scientist (Scott Dessain), a post-exit business professor/angel investor (Scott Fishman), and an MD/serial company founder (Greg Licholai) draw on decades of experience to show how improved practices can translate into greater success for everyone involved in biotech commecialization.

NOTE: We will have a direct "Longwood to i-lab" bus for this event (one trip). More info will be sent to registrants.
