So, You’re a Startup? How to Build Products Investors Love
Medical device innovators must consider the needs of many stakeholders (e.g., patient, clinical user, payer, regulator, and potential acquiror) to successfully develop their products and obtain the necessary financing along the way. It's critical that the right voices be heard, and the right actions be prioritized from conception through the product development process. Hear from a premier medical technology incubator on its process for starting companies and developing pioneering medical therapies.

Topics covered include:
  • Developing a plan that prioritizes activities to efficiently retire risk
  • Assessing the technical, clinical, regulatory, and reimbursement expertise needed to be successful
  • Understanding what investors want and how to craft your pitch
  • Addressing challenges in clinical study design and developing evidence demonstrative of your value proposition
  • Developing exit strategies – how to deliver return to your investors and other equity holders
