Commercialization: VIP Forums
Share |

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.
