At the earliest stage of  your companies’ development, you will have to grapple with a whole host of things besides the technology. Things like corporate structure, regulatory requirements, collaboration arrangements, protecting your Intellectual Property and investment issues. A little further along, you may need to re-visit all of the above, consider licensing agreements (including royalties), sales contracts and perhaps company valuation in order to secure investment. While many SMEs believe that most of the above can be tackled through common sense and the internet, it is highly likely that many SMEs will have to engage with organisations which have more legal firepower and know-how and you could come a cropper without some solid commercial foundations, understanding and help – this workshop is designed to provide just that.

This one-day event will:-

  • Help you understand the pros and cons of different corporate vehicles, and how to set up and structure them (including shareholder agreements)
  • Help you to understand the key early stage regulatory issues relevant to Healthtech start ups, including MHRA and GDPR requirements
  • Help you understand the IP being developed in your company’s products and how to protect it
  • Help you understand options for Routes to Market and key issues for Collaboration and Partnership Agreements with other companies, the NHS, and universities
  • Help you develop a rational basis to value your company and understand different forms of investment

Target Market: SME CEOs and Boards, university and NHS innovators, healthtech support organisations and consultancies.

Places are limited so register your interest today!  The organisers reserve the right to review all applications and notification will be sent by 6th December at the latest.
