 KPCB

Brook Byers will describe lessons learned from a decade of helping scientists and entrepreneurs build medically focused companies based on molecular diagnostics, biotech and informatics breakthroughs.  He will include the scientific, product development, team, regulatory, reimbursement, adoption, market and financial challenges that must be managed and overcome to be successful.  A recently difficult funding environment is turning around, but previous time-tested strategies need to be refined for contemporary success.

Target audience: Established and budding scientists, engineers, physicians and business-oriented entrepreneurs.
