When it comes to developing new therapies, medical devices, and health technologies, engaging industry is
often a vital part of the commercialization pathway. Academic researchers often look for co-development partnerships with companies, while start-ups seek acquisition. But what does it take to attract industry, and when is it appropriate to do so? What are the benefits and challenges of these interactions? How do you know when to run down the middle, or when to throw long?
You’re invited to join us as Fast Forward Medical Innovation and BioArbor host a panel of commercialization experts and entrepreneurial coaches discussing the “playbook” for working with industry, and you’ll learn more about the local resources you can tap into for your commercialization team.
