2009 SoCalBio Investor Conference

Posted By Mary Canady On September 1, 2009 @ 11:15 am In SDBN Blog,SDBN Feed | No Comments


I’ve been attending a lot of events in San Diego and reading reports [2] that opportunities for funding are increasing. I’ve been invited to attend the 2009 SoCalBio Investor and Partnership Conference [1] September 17th in Santa Monica, and I wanted to pass on the information to the group, as I know many of you are interested in getting funding, networking, or learning about what’s new.

The morning will consist of 3 parallel tracks of company presentations in Biotech/Biopharma, Devices, and Diagnostics and Instrumentation. After a networking lunch, Dr. Francois Nader, CEO of NPS Pharmaceuticals and a veteran in the industry, will present a keynote presentation. In the afternoon, three parallel investor/partnership tracks will take place for VC/angels, corporate partnerships, and innovative financing. As if this weren’t enough, the networking cocktail reception will showcase technologies from local institutions such as UCLA, UCI or USC.

This is a great opportunity to meet investors and learn about new technologies in the Southern California area. The SDBN is dedicated to improving communication among biotechnology professionals in the region, and I highly suggest that you attend. The event will likely have a different ‘flavor’ than the San Diego events, and you might learn about larger trends and opportnities. Click here to register.
