Featuring managing partners at top VC firms and CEOs of funded biotech companies, these experts provide key strategies for all stages of an investment with a focus on raising capital, establishing valuations, determining exit strategies, and structuring deals. From spotting opportunities and evaluating potential ROI to increasing fundraising and growing the company, these specialists offer strategies for building a management team, assessing potential exit scenarios, and navigating market opportunities. These seasoned experts reveal their advice for setting goals, mitigating risks, and avoiding common pitfalls. Additionally, the authors offer strategies for early-stage investing, determining M&A vs. IPO, and forecasting competitive technologies.
