Friday, November 13th, 12:00-5:00pm, UCSF Mission Bay. Life Science Angels Luncheon and Mentoring Day. We are pleased that a group of investors from Life Science Angels (LSA), the premier angel investment group focused solely on healthcare investing in all sectors--medical devices, diagnostics, therapeutics and digital health--is coming to UCSF for the third time. Their feedback has been highly valued by startups that have participated in the past. This is an opportunity to understand the angel investor mindset and to get direction about your venture.
Life Science Angels Meet and Greet Luncheon. 12:00-1:00pm. We are starting the day with a luncheon where you can join the informal conversation with angel investors about how investing works: angel interests, what makes a company investable, how advanced your venture should be to gain their attention, how angel networks function, the investment process, valuation, elements of a pitch deck and anything else you want to know. This candid discussion about angel investing is a fantastic opportunity to learn what you need to do to attract angel financing. Seating is limited so please sign-up early. Register.
Life Science Angels Mentoring Day. 1:00-5:00pm. Experienced angels who are investors and entrepreneurs will give you expert feedback on your business direction and business plan. This is NOT a pitch session, it’s a learning opportunity. You will gain information that would never surface in a formal investor meeting where the rules of engagement are to be encouraging and polite. Participants in prior years have found the no holds barred mentoring session to be extremely informative and valuable. This is a no-risk way to stress test your business plan with real investors who know what they are looking for in a venture. Sign up here for a 50-minute slot in the room that matches your sector so you will be mentored by with sector-appropriate angels.
