How do different types of corporate investors make decisions about where to put their funds? What's the difference between strategic and financial investors and why does that matter to those who work in life science companies? Orly Mishan will present an overview of biotech investing and her perspectives on what investors look for when considering and making investments in biotech companies.

This event is part of our Leadership Ready Program, a seminar series focused on career development and leadership topics that is combined with mentoring. While all are welcome to attend the seminars, those who attend a designated number of sessions and have enrolled in our mentoring (MAPS) program earn a “Leadership Ready” certification from WIB.
