3-week online academy

Engage, convert and manage the investor relationship

Course Overview

Biotech presents huge opportunities and risks for investors. Greater sums are now invested in the space than ever before, yet failure rates for new drugs remain very high. Investors are understandably cautious about opportunities and this can mean that investment timelines are long and the process sometimes unclear. This course is designed to demystify your investment journey and smooth the path.

Beginning with a comprehensive introduction, the course will move on to explore strategies for engaging with investors and managing the relationship across funding rounds.
