What Makes a Great Banking Partner?

9 Sep

By Rory McCann, Marketing Manager & Conference Producer, LSN

A question not asked enough by early-stage startup founders when looking for banking options is, “Which available resources are specific to the needs of my company and industry?” In a recent conversation with First Republic Bank’s Nishta Rao, we discussed this question, why it isn’t asked enough, and what founders stand to gain when they understand how much more valuable a banking relationship can be when it’s the right fit. We discuss First Republic’s life science toolkit and the resources available to early-stage startups in life science and healthcare.

Listen to our conversation and get to know First Republic Bank at RESI Partnering Week, September 13-15. Sign up today and mark your calendar for the sessions answering your questions about what a powerful banking relationship can do for you.
