Do you have a brilliant idea that you believe may lead to transformative innovation? Are you in the process of getting your new company off the ground? Turning an innovative idea into a fundable business plan can be daunting, especially for first time entrepreneurs. Some of the most frequently asked questions by scientists-turned-entrepreneurs are “what is a business plan?” and “what needs to be included in an investment deck?”
In this informative webinar, you will be hearing from Yinghong Gao of Viva, an early stage life-science investor and incubator, about the key ingredients that investors like Viva are looking for in a business plan and the most relevant building blocks that will help make your investment pitch deck stand out from the pack. Sam Alworth, CEO of AcuraStem, will then share his expertise with the audience from a founder’s perspective, outlining his unique journey, which has led to successful funding to enable AcuraStem’s trailblazing research in neurodegenerative disease drug discovery.
