M&A Capital Raising Panel, moderated by Andrew Colbert, provided an opportunity to hear best practices from industry experts and executives/founders that have successfully raised capital and/or sold healthcare companies. This panel explored topics such as: when to approach the market, how to think about valuation, which type of transaction makes sense, upfront preparation to increase success, choosing the right partner, deal structure do’s and don’ts, what to expect during due diligence and life after the transaction. Executives from both sides of the transaction shared critical takeaways for both emerging startups and later stage companies looking to maximize future growth and valuation opportunities.
