Investing in Health Care
Startup investment opportunities in health care

Health Care is a growth area full of opportunity for investors and entrepreneurs alike.  Attend this event to learn about some of the following issues and questions!

1) Investors: Rule #1 - invest in companies that can demonstrate that they reduce the cost of delivering healthcare.

2) FDA - Angel investors should avoid anything that will require more than 12-18 months of FDA approval AT THE MOST. There are other places companies should look for the long haul FDA approval funding process.

3) Digital health care - why is it so big? What are the risks? Who will the winners be and why?

4) Interesting statistics about investing in early stage healthcare companies. How do they do? Failure rate same or better than non-healthcare? What are the acquisition/exit opportunities? Are the big guys sitting on piles of cash, just waiting to acquire startups?

5) Trends in healthcare R&D and Innovation. Are big companies outsourcing their R&D to startups? If so, what opportunities does this provide for early stage healthcare investors?

6) Local success stories. What are some local healthcare startups that have been acquired in the past couple of years? What are their stories?

7) What are the economics of getting new, innovative products into hospitals, doctors and clinics? What do they look for before they are willing to try something new?
