Event Details

Finding your direction with data: navigating from idea to proof of concept to funding

DATE: Tuesday, October 16, 2012
: noon--1:00 pm (lunch provided)
: 212 Byers Hall, UCSF Mission Bay
: Elaine Allen, Babson College

Increasingly, angels and VCs want to see more data and a definitive proof of concept prior to funding. This talk will examine all the data you need to finish this step quickly.

  • How much data are enough? How do you design a definitive proof of concept experiment? These require a firm grounding in data analysis. A simplified template for choosing designs, analyses, and sample sizes will be covered including some case studies.
  • Part of your proof of concept includes understanding your competitors. Research synthesis using the tools of evidence-based medicine is an important component of profiling any new compound, therapy, diagnostic or app. Consulting examples will illustrate how this can help you move forward (or stop early).
  • Moving forward—it really is all about the data.

Launching a startup is difficult, especially for the first-time entrepreneur. There’s more to it than innovation. You have to manage operational issues, which can take up a lot of your time.

That’s why we developed the QB3 Accelerator, a membership program to help startups achieve operational excellence.

We’ve partnered with leading service providers in the Bay Area and beyond. QB3 Accelerator members can spend more time innovating and less time on accounting, human resources, payroll, ordering supplies, looking for equipment, and searching for CROs.
