Valuation is a confusing and often contested topic among life sciences and tech transfer professionals. With so many different valuation approaches, it sometimes seems nearly impossible to get realistic and objective figures that all parties can agree on.
However, companies in the life sciences industry require accurate valuations in order to raise investment funds, license IP, and set development milestones. There are a few valuation methods that the industry traditionally relies upon, but they are not only confusing but also time consuming to evaluate.
That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics has invited a team of experts to lead this enlightening webinar that will offer an easy-to-apply yet sophisticated model to accurately value your biotech, pharma, medical device and therapeutic IP while identifying market potential, potential licensees, and development partners. Please join Dr. S. Michael Camp, Founder and Executive Director of the Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization (TEC) Institute at The Ohio State University, and Justin A. Miller, MBA, founder and chief business officer of Quorum Therapeutics, when they team up to present this one-hour webinar:
