Your Board is one of the most valuable parts of your company. They help you steer, make decisions, and could get you that first investment. Or they can push you off a cliff, vote incorrectly, and cost you your company. We will help you get to Plan A.
The revered Professor Les Charm will talk you through how to know who to put on (and keep off) of your Boards, and much more.

Your funding journey will most likely happen in several rounds, but you have to start somewhere to get to that first milestone. Your first round of financing might not come from a large angel group, but could trickle in from friends, family, or a mix of a few angel investors.

Navigating the legal and logistical setup of your company can be a real headache and can also be expensive.

We understand that building a business can be daunting. It’s important to make sure you have everything set up from the beginning, and you want to have good working legal documents BUT there are ways you can gain information, get things up and running, and navigate the process without spending a ton of money up front.

Founders Workbench is a resource to help ease the process with legal documents, resources, and more.

Join us for an in-depth look at how you can use this resource to get your company up and running, and operating smoothly.

There are many routes to funding your life science startup. One way to get to the next step in the early stages is through strategic investments with industry partners. In this online interactive Google hangout, we will look at how a strategic investment differs from regular financial investments such as angels or VCs, and how this can both negatively and positively impact your company. It will also discuss who potential strategics are, their motivation, as well as the recent trends in strategic investment.

If you are looking for alternative routes to funding, this is the hangout for you!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by The Capital Network. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
