Funding biotech companies has probably never been harder than it is today. The old model of the highly capitalized fully-integrated bricks and mortar biotech with a concept that raises millions dollars in venture funding on its way to going public is a thing of the past.

VC's have less capital, capital is more expensive, M&A and option deals are often negotiated before investors will invest and IPO's are no longer the likely exit.

Today, angels are more active and are investing in therapeutic companies, VC's are looking for lower risk bigger opportunities, and big pharma are playing a larger role in exits and early stage fundings.

Join us on May 2, 2013 at The Broad Institute where you will hear from our panel of experts on the latest ideas on how YOU should set up, manage, partner and fund a new biotech venture today to best ensure that"if you build it, they will come."
