8th Annual Entrepreneur and Investor Roundtables

The Entrepreneur and Investor Roundtables is a unique event designed to facilitate introductions, dialogue and connections between life science entrepreneurs and investors. This event provides early stage companies with an accessible first step into capital markets while providing investors a first look at intriguing innovations. The Entrepreneur and Investor Roundtables event is well known for its iconic ‘speed-dating’ format. Each year, VC firms and Angel Investors listen to brief pitches from dozens of biotech entrepreneurs.

  • The speed dating format is designed to let early stage entrepreneurs pitch to as many as 30 major regional VC investors, angels and corporate venture groups in a span of one evening.
  • Entrepreneurs will be able to review investor profiles and investment areas on our Web site prior to the event. Investors will have access to profiles of emerging companies.*
  • This is an outstanding opportunity to make contacts with key funders and get on their radar early.
