Plenary: Launching and Funding a Company in a Challenging Environment: Investors' Perspectives of Best Practices and Critical Errors

Launching a life science company requires thousands of “make it or break it” decisions around developing the science, building the team, and financing the business. Additionally, we have gone from one of the strongest environments to one of the more challenging. This panel of seasoned investors will discuss best practices and critical errors companies make in building a capital stack from founding through acquisition as well as how those decisions influence an investor’s interest in investing at each stage and the impact on the company’s valuation. This panel will also dive into how the funding landscape for life science companies has transformed dramatically over the past 24 months.
