Through the internship it was fantastic to understand what Brandon are looking for in the projects they fund. The learnings from the internship program will be applied to the new projects we develop, both in reviewing the opportunity and developing a solid business plan that will increase the commercial success.
The internship was a valuable experience that filled a critical gap in my knowledge of how early-stage life science technologies are commercialised. Up to this point, my experience was from a technology development perspective, and I did not have a full understanding of what investors were seeking in potential investments. The internship experience is immeasurable and will pay dividends well into the future.
The internship was an excellent learning and development opportunity. I greatly improved my understanding of the venture capital financing model and elements such as valuation, due diligence, market analysis and drug development. The MRCF internship program also enabled me to expand my national commercialisation networks and work alongside experienced biotech investors.
