The 2nd Annual Financing Innovation and Technology in Healthcare Conference is evolving into one of the most respected and influential industry events, which attracts an impressive group of financiers, researchers, policy experts, and entrepreneurs to network and exchange ideas about financing healthcare innovation and technology in the post-reform environment. The 2012 conference in Chicago was attended by approximately 100 professionals representing healthcare, technology, venture capitalist, law, and private equity.

Knobbe Martens partners Thomas Yee and Bryan Wahl will be panelists at the 1:00pm session titled “Starts and Exits:  The Life Cycles of Life Science Startups.”

Overview: Each year entrepreneurs create a myriad of life science startup companies.  Many fail to launch or survive to see profitable exits.  This panel will highlight ways of increasing the odds of success based on experiences in launching and exiting successful healthcare startups.  Specifically, the panel will discuss the importance of strategic intellectual property development, new trends and challenges in fundraising, and other issues key to continued viability of healthcare startups in a challenging economic environment.
