Elevate your startup's communication with tailored coaching and support, inspire stakeholders and drive success.

Effective communication is essential to every startup - but especially to biotech companies. Not only do you need to communicate across your cross-disciplinary team, but you need to be able to explain why your solution matters to a range of stakeholders - from venture capitalists to advisors. 


At Founder to Leader, we can coach you and your team to improve your writing, speaking, and visual design skills. We can also dig in with you and help you get an important proposal or pitch ready to share. We can custom-build our support to best fit your timeline and needs.  

Our scientific communication expert

Shelby Doyle is our scientific communications expert, leveraging her diverse experiences in academia, research, and organizational leadership to guide founders in realizing their potential and maximizing their influence in the biotech and climate tech sectors.


How we support our scientific communication clients


Communication coaching is particularly effective because, in 1:1 sessions, you will receive individualized feedback to help you improve your skills and style. We can help you prepare for an important talk or work with you to build a highly impactful deck, enabling you to be able to do this work on your own after a handful of sessions with us.  


We've designed hybrid classes to help your team learn at their own pace throughout the week, and then come together for a live virtual chat with our team to answer questions. We offer classes a few times a year that are open to the public. Most often, though, we host classes for teams privately to learn together with us.

Workshops are typically 1-2 hour in-person or virtual learning sessions led by Founder to Leader. They're a great way to align your team with a new skill - and get everyone on the same page quickly. We're happy to build a custom workshop to meet your team's needs.
