9:00-10:30 a.m.: “Entrepreneuring” : The Key for Commercialization in Biotech                                         

There are many commercialization options: licensing vs. sponsored research vs. startup. All require a passion to network, listen to feedback and iterate to deeper mutual interests with prospective commercial partners. This process is key to shaping and refining a VALUE PROPOSITION that works for them. This panel will cover the keys to consider regardless of the chosen path, and how can you work towards success.

Understanding how each makes decisions will help you pull together a story about products and people with a plan that is fundable.

12-1:30 p.m.: Lunch with One-On-One Breakouts  (please note: one-on-one signups are now closed)

What’s the Plan? It’s the most common thing missing from a business plan!
