There’s no way around it – starting a company can be tough, regardless of the funding environment. Entrepreneurs will always be searching for better approaches for getting their companies off the ground faster and as cost effectively as possible. Now, new models to support that objective are being explored and seeing early success, including business accelerators, incubators, virtual companies and crowd funding.
Featuring leaders pioneering these new approaches, this panel will explore the benefits and limitations of each of these models, how startups can take advantage of these approaches, particularly in the tech and biotech industries, and whether these models are sustainable.
Presented by Johnson and Johnson.
