If you are thinking about starting a high-tech or biotech company (or you already are in an early-stage startup), come to this brown-bag lunch event to learn about how the FastTrac® TechVenture program can help you succeed.
(We're having another info session on Monday, March 24, just in case that day is more convenient for you.)
FastTrac® is a 10 week Entrepreneur Program developed by the Kaufman Foundation. OTBC is now a certified FastTrac® provider. We'll be kicking off a FastTrac® TechVenture program on Tuesday, April 15.
FastTrac® TechVenture provides the tools participants need to advance their technology venture to the next stage of business, whether seeking the last round of financing before going public or moving beyond the start-up stage. The program helps participants to reevaluate feasibility and create a business plan to communicate the opportunity to investors. The aspiring or experienced FastTrac® TechVenture entrepreneur is in the field of technology or life sciences and is:
Developing and marketing technology
Developing technology that enables a non-technology business, or
Developing biotechnology and life sciences products or services
After completing the program, FastTrac® TechVenture participants have:
Evaluated and improved a business concept
Developed and effectively communicated via elevator pitches, business plans, and investor presentations their:
Validity as an investment opportunity from equity and/or other capital sources.
Built a valuable network of entrepreneurial peers and important mentor relationships.
At the March 20 session, we'll talk about the program's benefits and results, walk through the program outline in detail, and answer your questions.
