Instructed by Laurence "Larry" Chaityn, founder of Propero/HCA and Global Head Healthcare Investment Banking at Kaminski Partners, the FastTrac LifeSciences course will provide participants a forum to:

  • Test their business' product/service, patient base, financial plan and technological viability

  • Learn how to value their business and raise money from funding sources
  • Determine the stages to profitability
  • Learn successful regulatory strategies, including correct protocol, achievable endpoints and correct patient participants

FastTrac LifeSciences will be held at Loeb & Loeb, 345 Park Avenue, 21st floor Conference Center. Classes begin Monday, January 28, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. EST and will be held each successive Monday for 10 weeks.  Space is limited. Participants can register at

"Interesting science and a novel mechanism of action are important when launching a biotechnology company, but success hinges on a multitude of factors, many of which occur in the boardroom and not at the bench," Chaityn said. "I look forward to helping life sciences entrepreneurs develop the essential business strategies that will allow them to navigate the hurdles of today's regulatory and financial landscape."
