ARM-01

ARM Your Brand: For Life Science Entrepreneurs and Investors

8:00 am to 11:00 am

Join us for an interactive breakfast and workshop on branding for companies in the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and biotech industry.

ARM Your Brand: How Audience, Relevance and Mechanics will prepare you and your company for the future.

Increased consumer expectations and perceptions of products / services as commodities means brands today need to differentiate and be meaningful and emotional to their audience, or they will not be relevant. Storytelling is fine, but the stories told must reflect real brand values and category realities that meet (and exceed) consumers’ believability criteria. Otherwise they will end up entertaining rather than engaging… and will end up going away.

Brands need to think beyond a single transaction and understand how they can build a tribe of loyal followers who will not only “buy” but also tell others why. These tribes of followers can be uniquely designed by monitoring their behavior, clustering their affinities, digesting their interactions, and building out their personas. Then you can start a value exchange that you both grow to love.

UnpitchEDU

UnpitchEDU

Building off the four year-old UNPITCH brand, we created UnpitchEDU to connect investors and student entrepreneurs for a casual conversation and networking over dinner.  It’s a no-pressure environment for both sides.  We are engaging student entrepreneurs and fostering the next generation of founders – the Brian Halligans and Sheila Marcelos.

It’s totally free for the entrepreneurs, the investors are buying dinner because each acknowledges that without great founders, there are no great investors.
