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.

When & Where
JLABS San Diego
JLABS, part of Johnson & Johnson Innovation, LLC, is a network of life science incubators providing emerging companies many of the advantages of being in a big company, without the capital investment. JLABS offers singular bench tops, modular wet lab units and office space on a short-term basis, allowing companies to pay only for the space they need, with an option to quickly expand when they have the resources to do so. Companies residing at JLABS also have access to core research labs hosting specialized capital equipment and shared administrative areas. JLABS is an open innovation model, and the agreement for space does not grant JLABS or Johnson & Johnson Innovation any stake or rights in the companies, nor will the companies have a guaranteed future affiliation with JLABS. The flagship facility is located in San Diego at Janssen's West Coast Research Center, and JLABS has now two established locations in San Francisco - one through a collaboration with the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) and a second standalone facility - one in Boston through a collaboration with Lab Central, one in Houston through a collaboration with TMC, and one in Toronto through a collaboration with MaRS.
