Spend a day learning about how and why to invest in life sciences companies that can make an extraordinary difference in our world, delivered by some of the most successful investors in North Texas.
The purpose of this event is to educate potential investors and faculty researchers about how and why to invest in biotech and life sciences startups. Early stage investing is risky and early stage biotech startups are viewed as one of the riskiest kind of investments, but they can also be incredibly profitable. This day-long event will demystify the process, educate investors and hopefully create more deal flow in life sciences startup companies.
Who should attend?
Private Equity Firms
Entrepreneurs in the biotech or life sciences industry
