How do you build successful biobusinesses in these tough and fast-changing times?

The Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) and independent bio business consultant, Miranda Weston-Smith, are working together to stage a one-day conference to answer this question and more. One Nucleus, the membership organisation for international life science and healthcare companies, is also a key partner.

The conference will bring together an all-female speaker line-up of biobusiness leaders from the UK and beyond to explore the strategies for enterprise, funding and growth that are proving most successful in today’s challenging economic times. It promises to be an invaluable and inspirational event for any bio entrepreneur seeking fresh ideas and impetus for building and funding successful ventures.

Participants will get the chance to learn from panel discussions on key topics:

Responding to global healthcare challenges

Hear how demographic and economic changes are impacting on bio innovation and financing

Building companies in new markets

Find out about innovative approaches to building a bio company and negotiating deals

101 on funding

The essential factors necessary to secure funding today

Creating effective teams and boards

Debating strategies for creating successful and effective teams and company boards

Who is it for?

The conference is open to all bio entrepreneurs, industry experts, academics and students wishing to participate in meaningful discussions and network with those who want to be part of the next wave of bio innovation.
