Target growth, target profit, target success!


The dramatic increases in valuation that a start-up must attain in order to become an acquisition candidate can only be created through the consistent attainment of key milestones.

In this workshop, we will cover the typical milestones by which an investment grade medical device company a evaluated and judged worthy of consideration for subsequent investment. Further we will breakdown these milestones into their organizational, product, governance, financial and market-based components. Students will learn how the key to increasing a business’ valuation along the way. In this workshop, you will be equipped with skills to design, develop and implement checkpoints to quantify the growth of your venture. Learn how to create measurable metrics that you will use to track your progress against these milestones.




About the 2009 WORKSHOP SERIES :

Every year medical device companies that start as “three technologists and a couple of patents” are acquired for hundreds of millions of dollars. You may be surprised to learn that not only does much of this activity occur right here in Orange County but also that the underlying process of preparing a company for acquisition is a well understood business methodology that can be learned, mastered and applied over and over. As a business student or UC Irvine technologist, you will want to know how the process of positioning a medical device company for acquisition works, how long it typically takes, who you need to involve, what the keys are to raising investment funds and how you can you can apply this process to your personal situation.

The objective of this year’s Les Kilpatrick Students to Start-ups series is to provide business students and UC Irvine technologists with a broad understanding of the 60 to 84 month process of preparing a medical device company for acquisition enabling them to begin factoring this powerful wealth creation mechanism into their career strategy.
