A comprehensive two-day educational experience for founders of early-stage medical device, therapeutics, diagnostics, and digital health companies. Starting a company is always challenging, but for founders of life science startups, the regulations and funding hurdles make it dauntingly complex, overwhelming, and seemingly insurmountable.
This first-time conference will answer the critical questions that founders must address to start and grow viable life science companies. Industry experts and successful entrepreneurs will provide practical guidance on how to commercialize innovations in each of four sectors: medical device, therapeutics, diagnostics, and digital health. If you have a new startup in this space or are ready to start one, this two-day event may be for you.
Speakers and panelists representing each industry sector will share lessons, advice, and insights. You'll hear from keynote speaker, Kim Popovits, CEO, Genomic Health; Steve Blank, serial entrepreneur and author; Stephen Spielberg, deputy commissioner for medical products and tobacco at the Food & Drug Administration; Paul Yock, founder, Stanford Biodesign; Karl Handelsman, managing director, CMEA Capital; and more.
During the two-day Summit, you will:
Learn how to persuasively articulate your idea and iterate on different business models.
Learn team formation, and co-founder lessons that most first-time founders miss.
Identify and understand the alternative channels to fundraising.
Navigate the regulatory maze of intellectual property protections, FDA approvals, clinical development paths, and reimbursement dynamics.
Network with like-minded founders, industry experts, angel and venture capital investors, and successful entrepreneurs.
