Program Overview:
Although VC's are a traditional source of funding, there are also many alternative financing opportunities. It's about knowing the right people. Join our panel to hear from government granting agencies, foundations, angel investors and VCs who have funding opportunities for your company. Our Panel discussions are candid, interactive and informal. We want you to walk away with the real story behind how things work so you can make it happen for yourself. This Panel will be followed by a networking Reception.

In addition to this cutting-edge panel presentation, tours of Janssen Labs will be available during the program's networking reception. Join us for an opportunity to meet with leading investors, explore the state-of-the-art facility and support Janssen Labs' pioneering approach to accelerate innovation.

About Janssen Labs
Janssen Labs is a life science innovation center located at the Janssen Research & Development West Coast Research Center in San Diego. The facility provides emerging companies many of the advantages of being in a big company, without the capital investment. Janssen Labs offers singular bench tops, modular wet lab units and office space on a short-term basis, allowing companies to pay only for the space that they need, with an option to quickly expand when they have the resources to do so. Companies occupying space at Janssen Labs also have access to core research labs hosting specialized capital equipment and shared administrative areas. Operational support is provided by Prescience International, an external firm that specializes in the set-up and operations of life science innovation centers. Janssen Labs is an open innovation model, and the agreement for space does not grant Janssen any stake in the companies, nor will the companies have a guaranteed future affiliation with Janssen.

About Prescience International

We engage with private and public clients to create and operate unique innovation centers, design and deliver world-class educational programs, and provide targeted commercialization support services.
