[NYC session] Lessons in Herding Cats: Business Development for Life Science Companies

What are the ins and outs of making a partnership, from the perspective of a strategic investor? 

The business development professional's purpose is to optimize optionality and long term value at each stage of a company's life. How do you determine the direction that will add the most value to your company? How do you avoid the constant pursuit of "shiny objects"? How do you know when it's the right time for a strategic partnership? 

In this workshop, you'll hear from a deal making team at Johnson & Johnson Innovation and learn fundamental business development skills to help you successfully evaluate and manage strategic alliances and other potential growth opportunities. 

Topics will include:

  • Strategic alliance process management
  • Concepts in valuation
  • Technical diligence
  • Communication and negotiation skills

This workshop is geared towards business development professionals and management teams of life science startups.
