Watch, listen and learn. Our 2020 AdvanSE session can help you know, and fix, the ways medtech innovators burn cash unnecessarily. 


Too many promising medtech innovations and early stage companies fail unnecessarily because they run out of funding before achieving milestones required for next-round investments. 


It is possible to know earlier in the process when innovators are burning cash at too high a rate and failure is nearly certain. 


Learn from GCMI’s Sarah Cohen, Advanced Catheter Therapies’ Paul Fitzpatrick, Jackson Medical’s Kamil Mahknejia, UVA Licensing and Venture Group’s Andy Krouse from their 2020 Southeast Life Sciences AdvanSE event recorded in November. 


Watch, listen and learn:

  • Top ways innovators burn cash unnecessarily
  • How innovators can know they are wasting time and money prototyping
  • How to know when a medtech innovation is ready for preclinical work
  • The critical importance of activity sequencing in the medtech innovation pathway
  • Critical questions to ask prospective partners in regulatory, IP, engineering and reimbursement
