About the Seminar:

It's clear that to start a biotech company, access to capital is a key requirement. In this lunchtime seminar we plan to show that data can be the key requirement to accessing capital. We will show that your well-designed proof of concept experiments can open the door to financing but beyond the proof of concept, identifying a clear path to sustained growth can seal a deal. Using examples from early stage companies we have worked on together and separately, we’ll cover some concrete statistical, visualization, and algorithmic principles to use as you build your company.
