Transcript of "Mass Connect Request for Plans"

  1. 1. MassCONNECT:Requests for Plans<br />Questions or comments? Please contact Imran Nasrullah, Chief Business Officer at MassBio at 617-674-5151.<br />
  2. 2. Return completed application to: RFPMassCONNECT@massbio.org<br />2<br />MassCONNECT welcomes you!<br />Are you interested in starting a life sciences based company, either as a founder or entrepreneur? MassCONNECT can assist you in getting your ideas and technology crystallized into a business opportunity for presentation to the investment community. We are here to help you think about and think through your business opportunity, and most importantly, connect you to the enablers of the biopharmaceutical industry.<br />The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council (MassBio) created MassCONNECT to link new entrepreneurs and founders with seasoned biotechnology professionals and entrepreneurs to provide industry expertise, evaluation, and guidance to you as a means to commercialize your ideas. The goal is to enable new company start-up through partnership with mentors, establish the right connections with industry facilitators. This may result in working with venture capitalists, angels, and other financiers who will help launch your company.<br />MassBio brings you MassCONNECT: experts in biotechnology evaluation, entrepreneurship, and financing working with you to bring your ideas to market through start-up and licensing. Our imperative is to ensure that innovation continues to thrive in Massachusetts and that entrepreneurs get the help they need to solve unmet medical needs.<br />2<br />CONFIDENTIAL<br />
  3. 3. Return completed application to: RFPMassCONNECT@massbio.org<br />3<br />MassCONNECT welcomes you!<br />Why you should join MassCONNECT:<br /><ul><li>showcase your technology to industry experts comprising biopharmaceutical executives, venture capitalists, and angels;
  4. 4. connect with individuals and teams of mentors who will provide practical advice on how to increase the value of your opportunity;
  5. 5. receive coaching to prepare for investment pitches and develop concise business plans;
  6. 6. connect to resources to improve your idea;
  7. 7. connect you to avenues for financing your technology;
  8. 8. network into business professionals to develop your management team.</li></ul>CONFIDENTIAL<br />3<br />
  9. 9. Return completed application to: RFPMassCONNECT@massbio.org<br />4<br />Instructions<br />This template is intended to serve as a guide on how to think and communicate your opportunity to mentors and ultimately potential investors. The template will collect relevant business and technology information for the MassCONNECT evaluation group so they can quickly evaluate your opportunity and determine the level of resources required by mentorship teams. <br />In instances where some opportunities are farther along than others, mentorship teams will provide fewer resources in time and effort, since much of the work will have already been done. For example, all that may be needed is an introduction to angel investors, entry into business plan competitions, and presentation to venture capital firms. Other opportunities will be more inchoate, thus, will require resources from mentorship teams and business volunteers who will provide their services and feedback to help you crystallize your opportunity. <br />Please review this template and consider how best your opportunity can be characterized. We understand you may not have all the answers, but answer questions to the best of your knowledge. In the end, MassCONNECT is here to help you and to be a resource for you. You will note check boxes on the left; check the box that best characterizes your opportunity. This information will help reviewers to quickly sort the opportunity to the right set of reviewers.<br />CONFIDENTIAL<br />4<br />
  10. 10. Return completed application to: RFPMassCONNECT@massbio.org<br />5<br />Instructions<br />There are four sections to the template: Basic Opportunity Information, Diagnostic, Therapeutic, and Technology. After you complete the Basic Opportunity Information, go to the section relevant to your opportunity, e.g. diagnostic, therapeutic, etc. <br />Note: you need only complete those sections that pertain to your opportunity (6-12 slides). In the case of theranostics, indicate so by checking the box on the left and complete both the diagnostic and therapeutic portions of the template.<br />CONFIDENTIAL<br />Figure 1.<br /><ul><li>Diagnostic
