Skype Presentation Registration

Skype Presentations

Eighteen Ventures offers free instructive monthly Skype presentations on starting, funding and growing profitable small health technology companies.

The interactive sessions are designed to support health technology entrepreneurs' efforts to:

  1. Build and launch successful small businesses,
  2. Obtain public capital (i.e. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) seed grants), and
  3. Obtain private sector investment capital (i.e. Venture Capital, Health System Venture and Healthcare Corporate Venture Capital Funds.)

Can Your Health Technology Startup Business Model Get Funded?

On Wednesday, October 23rd, Eighteen Venture’s next free Skype Presentation will provide information and illustrations on how to prepare a fundable business model for health technology development startups and small emerging firms.

The business model informs private investors that your firm has a viable strategy to produce a novel, marketable, problem-solving solution that will help build a profitable company. Moreover, the business model is a significant factor investors consider when deciding to invest in your small firm.

If your business model does not properly answer key questions like what healthcare or medical problem is being solved, how does the proposed solution solve the problem, who are the intended buyers/users, who are the strategic partners, what resources are needed to be successful, what is the company’s competitive advantage, how are revenues generated, and what are the business operational costs, then investors will reject the firm’s funding request.

The Wednesday, October 23rd sessions will cover:

• Why business models matter

• What are the nine components that comprise a business model

• What are the key elements that go into a startup health technology development business model

• How to prepare a fundable business model

• How to use the business model to attract potential private investors
