Raising Capital – Financing Strategy and Approach

Cooley lawyers Matthew Schwee and Lila Inman led this session.

The session explored strategic and tactical considerations of equity financing for life science companies, including a discussion on investor outreach, presentation materials and potential sources of equity capital. The session also broadly explored how to successfully raise equity in the context of a company’s life cycle/stage and tactical considerations too, such as issues to get right at any initial financing, readying for a due diligence process, understanding key lingo, and the anatomy and intricacies of a typical venture capital financing.
