Brand Building for Early-Stage Life Science Companies

San Francisco, CA


9:30am - 11:00am

Time to grow up: Getting out of the lab and into the boardroom

All too often, with a laser focus on the lab, early-stage life science companies don’t recognize the benefits a well-known brand brings to the future development of their company. And yet brand building is integral to making that leap from the lab into the boardroom, and ultimately to market.
But when is the right time to start building your brand so the broader community can see it?
A reputable brand is an organic, living thing that takes time to develop. A Phase I trial is the critical point to start making your company and therapy more visible to the life science ecosystem. The science is showing promise but a strong brand presence is needed to get it through the rest of trial process and to gain the next round of investment to bring it to the market.
This session will explore the tools at your disposal to rally a founding team into building a strong, compelling corporate brand.
