I recently presented on Fundraising Best Practices at the FreeMind Group’s 11th annual Non-Dilutive Funding Summit in San Francisco, to an audience comprised of scientist-entrepreneurs and fundraising CEOs. The Fundraising Best Practices session helped create context and understanding for these entrepreneurs around issues related to branding and messaging of their firms. The presentation also explains why organizing a global target list of investors that are a fit for your sector and stage is vital to an efficient fundraising process. Last but not least, I discussed and debunked some of the myths around fundraising, what works, and what doesn’t work.
Many of the concepts covered in the presentation are expanded upon in LSN’s book, The Life Science Executive’s Fundraising Manifesto.
