Venture Investment & Partnering (VIP) Forums

One of the WBBA’s objectives is to assist life science companies, entrepreneurs and researchers in bridging the gap between discovery and commercialization. To this end, WBBA has an exciting program called Venture Investment & Partnering (VIP) Forums. VIP Forums present a unique opportunity for local life science entrepreneurs, companies and researchers to meet with quality investors and strategic partners. We invite venture capital firms, corporate venture groups and multinational strategics (VIPs) to Seattle for a two-part event.

First, WBBA hosts a Plenary Session during which the VIP discusses their targets, interests, and investment/partnering strategies, and answers questions from the audience. The Plenary Session is followed by a networking reception. Second, pre-selected organizations present their investment and partnering opportunities to the VIP in a one-on-one setting.

Previous VIPs include LongTech Medical, Johnson & Johnson Development Corp.,Shire Pharmaceuticals, C.R. Bard, MedImmune Ventures and Partnering, H.I.G. BioVentures, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Bayer Healthcare, Merck Global Health Innovation, Takeda Ventures, Johnson & Johnson’s COSAT, BioWa, Inc., Essex Woodlands, NEA and OrbiMed.

There are no fees associated with this event; companies chosen for 1:1 meetings MUST be WBBA members.

VIP Forums are made possible by the partnership and generous support of:
