Guidance for the Life Science Entrepreneur Looking for Strategic Investments in Their Business: Perfect Your Pitch

Posted April 20, 2018 by OCP | Post a Comment

This past week, David H. Crean, PhD, Managing Director and head of our Life Sciences and Healthcare Practice Group, spent time reviewing the >400 life science opportunities that were presented to him and our investment banking firm in 2017 in which entrepreneurs and business owners were looking for either capital financing, sell-side M&A, strategic advisory services or partnering/ licensing. Nearly invariably, each investment pitch lacked the complete and necessary material to tell the comprehensive story that would be compelling for an investor to write a check. These entrepreneurs are very smart and passionate about their mission but need to recognize and think like investors or strategic buyers. Investors see and hear many investment opportunities and you need to be differentiated and stand out from the masses.
