It is said that investors put their money behind people, not ideas. According to Forbes, this is supported by the fact that human factors (an incompatible team, lack of persistence, and loss of focus) are identified as primary causes of startup failure, not market forces. Attracting the right team members is key to startup success. And where startups are concerned, if you can’t scale your team, you can’t scale your idea, and your startup is dead in the water.

In this session, hear from our panel of experts on hiring advice for startups trying to build a successful team, their experience building a BioTech startup team, and the various opportunities and success factors that have helped them in their team building journey.
