In this latest edition of the summer reading series, we will be explaining the importance of understanding where your opportunity fits within the marketplace. Knowing who you are and how you compare with other companies in the space is crucial in determining the investors to whom you should be reaching out, what you should be highlighting in your marketing materials, and, in some cases, whether you need to “pivot,” or change, your commercialization plan.
Chapter 5 of The Life Science Executive’s Fundraising Manifesto, “Knowing Who and What You Are, and Where You Fit,” discusses how to define yourself and your market, as well as the importance of being able to pivot after receiving feedback and how to identify when it is strategically relevant to do so.
We hope this text proves to be informative. Join us next week for Chapter 6: “Branding and Messaging”, for some tactical tips on how to build a brand for your company.
