San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Steve Kirnon, Co-Founder and CEO, PharmaPlan and Gale Richards, Partner, BioQuest. Your team is one of the keys to your success, but how do you choose the right one? Should you work with friends, labmates or fellow physicians, or is it better to recruit to a specific profile? How do you find the right people? How do you know if they’re compatible with your style? How do you create a company culture that reflects your values? How do you motivate the team? Hear from two experienced executive search people, CEO's and venture investors on their experience building entrepreneurial teams.
Steve will discuss basic concepts, followed by Gale who will lead a panel of two CEOs and an investor: Ferolyn Powell, former CEO of the device company eValve; Geoff Clapp, Co-Founder of dhealth company Better and Lisa Suennen, Managing Partner, Venture Valkyrie. The panel will share their views from a practitioners’ standpoint about building a team.
Reception to follow sponsored by Latham & Watkins.
