FAST Advisory Program
Since launching in Fall 2013, FAST program cycles have generated over 5500 advisory hours valued at over $1,200,000 for the 50 companies who have been through the program. Since participating in FAST, these companies have raised over $326 million and created 243 new jobs, more than doubling their workforce. Fifteen of these companies have secured Series A investments, 9 have concluded strategic partnerships and 3 have successfully exited.
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.
