Are you a biotech, med-tech or health-tech startup/company looking to convey complex R&D concepts products or services to your clients, investors or patients in a clear and visually-engaging way?

Let’s be frank: great science-entrepreneurs don’t always make for great communicators. That can be a challenge when you are engaging with investors and supporters who could make or break your businesses.

Upstream’s lunch and learn with Reciprocal Space will demonstrate why science communication matters now more than ever and will provide useful advice on design of presentations for clients and investors in the biotech and medical sector.

This workshop will showcase what Reciprocal Space can do for young, aspiring biotech, med-tech and health-tech companies and demonstrate their previous work translating scientific language and concepts into journal illustrations, animations to branding and designing logos.
