Navigating the development process of a new product or medical device can be a daunting task. Whether you are a startup biotech or medical device company, the various phases of development require access to significant capital resources. Therefore, life science companies must think strategically about accessing alternative sources of funding. 
Join BDO, Dentons, and USI for the first in a series of interactive roundtable discussions for life science companies. This session will address a range of topics on alternative sources of funding, including:
  • Evaluating appropriate opportunities
  • Assessing value drivers and strategic assets
  • Funding sources, including licensing arrangements, the sale of commercialization rights, and co-development initiatives 
  • Considerations for intellectual property and technology
  • Deal structures and tax implications
There are meaningful insurance implications related to the above topics, including:
  • Product liability, contractual indemnity, and transaction liability considerations
  • Directors and Officers Liability implications and market dynamics
Space is limited, so please respond promptly. We hope to see you there!
