1st PITCH LIFE SCIENCE
“EAVESDROPPING ON INVESTORS’CLOSED DOOR DISCUSSIONS”
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6th, 2016
5:30PM – 8:30PM
Medidata Solutions, 350 Hudson St
Registration is required; doors close at 6:30pm
This is the best-of-the-best event! Make your voice heard who of the previous winners should win the best pitch of 2016!
Hear what happens AFTER a start-up company presents to an investor group! Usually after the company representatives leave the room, the investors have a private discussion to decide whether the opportunity merits further investigation and possible investment. 1st Pitch Life Science offers presenters and audience members the chance to hear what happens in those closed-door discussions, and to learn what really matters to investors.
1st Pitch Life Science is organized by MABA (Mid Atlantic Bio Angels) (www.bioangels.net), a life science investor group, to encourage and educate aspiring life science entrepreneurs who know they may be too early to seek investment but want the opportunity to practice their pitch and to receive constructive criticism from experienced and knowledgeable professionals.
Presenting at 1st Pitch Life Science allows early stage life science entrepreneurs to:
- Try out a pitch where no money is immediately at stake
- Hear what investors and audience members think of their presentation and opportunity
- Receive early, constructive feedback from knowledgeable and experienced industry people (including representatives from Mid Atlantic Bio Angels)
- Potentially connect with advisors/mentors and other team members who may be interested in supporting the company’s efforts and adding value at an early stage
Audience members get to hear how entrepreneurs are pursuing new science and new business opportunities and to provide their own feedback regarding the value and effectiveness of those efforts. The audience votes on a “Best in Show” company which will advance to an annual “Best of the Best” competition.
There is no downside – no investor rejection, no lost opportunities. Just good advice and potential connections that a company can use to improve its strategy and presentation.
Also, note our "Looking For" section on the registration. Let us know what your startup is looking for - software engineer, patent attorney, management, etc - and we will provide you with a yellow name badge with this information printed on it so others can easily tell you are looking for something!
The 1st Pitch event will be preceded by a “meet with investors” roundtable discussion, between 4:30 – 5:30. The investors at the roundtable will discuss approaching angel groups for investment, the investment process, things to do and to avoid, things investors look for in an investment opportunity, how angel groups work with other groups, etc., including a Q&A session.
