Why create a pitch deck for your biotech startup?

The trillion-dollar biotech industry has recently experienced growing pains. Investment in the space has slowed, with HSBC’s reporting investors put $2B into 81 seed and Series A biotech startups, a three-year low. With valuations down, many have reported the biopharma industry is in for a “painful reset” in coming years.
