Candice He, Vice President, Business Development & Global Investment Strategist, Life Science Nation

The Branding & Messaging workshop discusses how to brand you and your firm and how to provide potential investors with high-quality, professional collateral—materials that engage them, communicate your message clearly and concisely, and present the information they want to see in a way that helps them to decide quickly and easily if you are a potential fit for their needs.

It All Starts with Your Story
Dennis Ford, Founder & CEO, Life Science Nation
Alex Vassallo, Business Development Manager West Coast, Entrepreneurial Education Lead, Life Science Nation

The most successful entrepreneurs are always the best storytellers. Finding a way to naturally formulate your company’s unique story and portraying this through multiple modalities whether it be a 1-minute elevator pitch or a 12-slide pitch deck is one of the most effective ways to get potential investors and partners on board with your value proposition. This bootcamp will cover the importance of entrepreneurial agency, finding your voice and developing a compelling narrative for the different players that will emerge along a deal chain, and language tools to refine your hook. Investors always bet on the team, not just the technology, and if every member of your startup can tell any strategic partner a consistent story of your company and technology, you are on the right track to building successful relationships.
