Locust Walk’s Guide to Raising Capital and Retaining Ownership

Locust Walk’s “Guide to Raising Capital and Retaining Ownership” is a first-of-its-kind course to teach biotech entrepreneurs how to level the playing field when getting their company off the ground.  It is designed for first-time CEOs who want to know the ropes on how to start a company, serial CEOs who have never started a company without venture capital on board from the outset, scientific inventors who want to play an important role in the realization of their innovation, and those who want to know what it takes to successfully navigate the company creation maze.

Through Locust Walk’s tested experience, we will show participants how to prioritize the right application for a technology, spin a prioritization decision into a cohesive story, solicit strategic partners, and approach institutional investors to both capitalize the company and maximize value for all stakeholders. This course will be held in person, June 11-12, 2022, in San Diego, Calif.

Topics covered:

  • Prioritizing the technology’s applications and building the business plan
  • Developing the story and strategy
  • Raising capital from institutional investors
  • Integrating strategic partnering into the strategy
