BayBio is pleased to announce Fellows All-Star Team (FAST) Advisory Program, a team-based business advising program that connects qualified startups with the strength and experience of the world’s leading life science cluster. The program draws on a high-level team of advisors to provide experience, contacts and counsel to qualified applicants, and is made possible through the generous support of Abbott Diabetes.
FAST Advisory provides selected entrepreneurs with the expert feedback needed to prove their business model and develop a compelling commercialization strategy. Experienced entrepreneurs, product and business experts (which may include clinical development, regulatory, reimbursement and business development specialists) will advise selected Fellows during an 8-week program, culminating in a Final Fellow Pitch Showcase to a broad audience that includes potential investors.
