Many startup founders struggle to find funding to expand their business after raising Pre-Seed and Seed rounds, especially in 2023. Only 48% of startups manage to raise Series A funding, after a Seed round. Fundraising in Series-A is much more challenging and requires a more careful and detailed strategic planning compared to earlier stages.

Startups can run into liquidity bottlenecks if they fail to raise funding on time, which can put pressure on the company to raise money on unfavourable terms. They tend to think from science perspective, which is not always in line with what is needed to investor interest.

In this Expert Class, investors will share their views on what Biotech and Medtech companies need to be ready for a successful Series A funding round. Insights from experienced entrepreneurs will also be shared and during an interactive session, startups will have the opportunity to discuss their Series A funding strategy.

Speakers to be announced.
