Innovator Showcase - Presentation
For Companies Seeking VC Funding

The Innovator Showcase will be a presentation by a "chosen few (6-8)" innovative Biotech and Life Sciences companies both private and public that are seeking VC funding with imminent funding potential. The screening process is extremely rigorous and we will only select companies that we think are fundable in the present market conditions. The number of companies for presentation is limited to 12 or less.

For example Serenex and Transave, two 2005 conference presenters, were able to secure $30M and $17.824M, respectively.

Examples of companies already chosen to present at the 2006 conference are:

  • $57M funded drug discovery company seeking $40M Series C
  • $30+M funded drug discovery company ready to go on Phase II and III clinical trials seeking $25M
  • a $9.2M funded cell therapeutics company approved for clinical trial seeking $6M

If Not Chosen: If your application is declined, you'll receive feedback from us at "no-cost" why you were not chosen and what you need to do next.

Why should I apply to present?

  • If selected, you will have the unique opportunity to showcase your research, product, services and business plan in a 7-10 minute Power Point presentation to an audience of active investors and potential strategic partners.
