Expert advice to take your life sciences business to the next level

Do you run a small life sciences business in Scotland? Are you passionate about your idea and working round the clock to make it a success?
Are you finding it challenging to do everything? Do you need expert advice and support to take your business to the next level?
If the answer is yes to any of the above, clear your diary for Monday November 12th and come to Life Sciences Scotland annual conference in Glasgow – and meet a range of experts who can give you the advice, support and guidance you need.
You need investment for your business. Where do you start looking for grants and for investors who might support your business? Who should you talk to? What range of funding options are available to you as your business starts up and scales up? 
What is Life Sciences 4.0 and what can digitalisation do for my business? Is your business ready for the data age? What strategy is right for you? What are the common pitfalls and how can you avoid them?
How do you build the right partnerships and collaborations to help your business in the digital age?
What about Intellectual Property? What can – and can’t – be protected? How do I protect it and how soon do I need to do that?  Who should I speak to?
What can R&D tax credits do for me? How can they help me bring my ideas to life?
And what of social media marketing? Does it  apply to a technical sector like life sciences? Will it require lots of additional resource? Does it replace traditional marketing methods? Where do I start?
Finally, what about talent? Where do I go about finding the right people for all levels of my business? If I am in a very specialist sector, are there enough skilled individuals to fill my gap? What training opportunities are open to my staff?
All delegates at the event will be able to choose two of these masterclasses – and if two is not enough, there is lots of networking time built in throughout the day to chat to experts about specific areas of your business. This includes a drinks reception – free to all delegates – at the end of the day. 
Earlier in the event, young leaders and growing businesses in the life sciences community will give you the benefit of their experience – you’ll have the chance to talk to them too.
Also, senior figures from business, government, the NHS and academia will discuss the big issues affecting life sciences in Scotland – and whether we are on target to hit the £8 billion turnover target by 2025. Where do YOU fit into this big picture?
We really hope to see you there on November 12th, to join the debate – and find out how to make your business part of Scotland’s successful life sciences story.
