FAST Advisory Program
Since launching in Fall 2013, FAST program cycles have generated over 2900 advisory hours valued at over $725,000 for the 24 companies who have been through the program. Since participating in FAST, these companies have raised over $97 million and created >100 new jobs.
The FAST Advisory Program provides select entrepreneurs with intensive team review and coaching to perfect their business model, product development plans, and to build a compelling commercialization strategy. Experienced entrepreneurs, product and business experts (which may include clinical development, regulatory, reimbursement and business development specialists) will advise selected Fellows during a ten-to-twelve week program, culminating in a Final FAST Showcase to a broad audience that includes potential investors and partners.
