Event Speaker Bio: 

Austin Walker combines a unique blend of executive, engineering, medical, and international experience. He co-founded a medical technology company - recruiting a team with over $3B prior product sales, oversubscribing desired levels of financing, and achieving product development milestones in 1/3 the time of competitor medical technology companies. He graduated amongst the top of his class as a biomedical engineer from Northwestern. He was on track to graduate from UCSF medical school with highest honors, but formally withdrew to focus on company development.

Event Details
Event Details: 

It is well known that early stage funding for traditional life sciences is tight. There are fewer and fewer venture firms interested in the space, and proposed deals frequently have suboptimal terms for founders. Austin discusses alternative approaches to financing and highlights his experience declining traditional venture financing. The group will take a dive into world of angels, micro-VC funds, incubators/accelerators, family funds, non-dilutional/government, strategic financing, traditional venture financing, and more. Discussion and audience involvement will be encouraged.
