Do you have a strategy for responding to the temperamental IPO market and making the most of alternative financing strategies?

Foley & Lardner LLP and the NanoBusiness Alliance are pleased to invite senior business executives and investors to participate in a roundtable discussion addressing how nanotechnology companies can develop financing strategies for success.

Discussion topics include:

  • Financing growth and development of a nanotechnology company with long product development timelines, little or no near-term revenue, and potential applications in many industries
  • Determining when the sale of your company is the most viable and what factors have made other nanotechnology companies attractive targets
  • Deciding whether to go IPO, OTC, AIM, or private equity
  • Exploring nontraditional financing options
  • Positioning your company for the best financing options
