Discussion topics

Raising Capital to Fund Your Organization
When it comes to raising capital, there are a wide variety of potential sources - some traditional and some a bit unconventional. Learn about various capital raising options including convertible debt, equity and preferred equity, and opportunities with venture capital funding. This panel will include key executives from Life Sciences organizations who have utilized these funding alternatives and a Venture Capital Firm focused in the Life Sciences industry.

Navigating the IPO and Alternative IPO Processes
Planning and executing a successful IPO, reverse merger, or Form 10 is a challenging undertaking, especially for CEOs and CFOs who are responsible for many aspects of the transaction. Understanding the necessary steps and the roles that advisors play within the process is essential to ensure that an organization is optimizing its approach from a legal, SEC compliance, and accounting perspective. Our panel of experts will share insights and observations based upon their involvement with recent IPOs, reverse mergers, and Form 10 transactions. Legal, regulatory (SEC) and accounting perspectives will be highlighted including a discussion of key opportunities arising from the JOBS Act.
