A Glimpse Into the Mind of the Life Science Investor – Hosted by JLabs

November 4 @ 11:30 am2:00 pm

You have an idea, started some experiments, but it is time to move your idea forward and you need seed capital to take those next steps. Where do you go and how do you do it? What operational steps need to be taken?

The truth is there is no one clear cut path on raising those first dollars, but it needs to get done. Is this program we will discuss:

  • What questions can early investors be asking?
  • What type of investor are you looking for; what skill sets they should bring, their entrepreneurial experience (angels, super angels, family offices)
  • Building your network (how do you find these people)
  • How does crowd funding work and can it be right for you?
  • What are typical mistakes to avoid so you can be set up for your Series A
  • Legal and IP concerns

In this program you will hear from individuals whose companies have successfully raised startup capital and investors who provide those funds. Additionally, will discuss the early-stage process that can help you get started on better footing so your journey can be smoother. You will also hear hand selected, pre-series A JLABS companies pitch to investors as they look for that next funding round.
