Boot Camp 2020

Investment requires more than just technology, and startups must tell a compelling story that meets the needs of their customers, their funders, and acquirers. Funders must receive a return, which requires a liquidity event, sometimes an IPO, frequently the sale of the company to an acquirer. Importantly, this requires that the acquirer’s needs be built into the company from the very beginning.

It is a simultaneous equation that must be balanced, and this Boot Camp provides you the tools and considerations to improve the success of your journey. The Boot Camp was created in response to the growing need in the managerial, scientific, and academic community to learn about these elements and the skills to transform technology and invention into a viable company.

BIO Boot Camp is sponsored by Pepper Hamilton LLP.
