Life Science Funding Series - Owning Your Financials
More powerful than a CFO to clarify the numbers, is a CEO with a clear understanding of the financials. This session will focus on the terms and skills needed to create a defensible financial picture of your company including key milestones such as break-even and profitability dates as well as valuation and the cap-table. Session participants will leave prepared for that first meeting with a VC.
Breakfast Networking: 8am-8:30am
What is the investor looking for when viewing the financial viability of a company? What financial story makes a company fundable? What makes a CEO credible?
