BD&L Summit for Life Sciences

Unlock the potential of a deal through optimizing business development activities and transactional excellence


San Francisco, CA, United States

The 2nd BD&L Summit serves as an open forum for cross-functional business development teams to share valuable insights and actionable strategies on successfully managing alliances, licensing agreements and M&A deals.

Designed as a platform for M&A, licensing, and transaction executives to share best practices from the biotech and big pharma perspective, this conference goes one step further by providing two tracks dedicated to the following areas:  
  • Legal/Transactions
  • Business Development
Given the complexities of today's reimbursement landscape, a product's commercial success is often the most worrying factor. In order to effectively evaluate any new business development opportunities and ensure that every potential for unlocking the value of a transaction has been realized while forecasting the probability of both development and commercial success, life science companies need to ensure the right internal experts are involved in the evaluation process. This calls for the development and continuous improvement of a formal process that will allow organizations to efficiently and effectively evaluate, negotiate, structure, and close a transaction.

The 2nd BD&L Summit for Life Sciences serves as an educational platform for cross-functional experts to share best practices for managing M&A, strategic alliances, and licensing deals, and allows teams to choose their own adventure and tailor their educational experience by attending sessions from two distinct tracks. Don't miss this opportunity to gain a holistic view of the broader business development process and learn from your peers on how to better support your functional counterparts.
