Event Details

The regulatory environment and funding hurdles make creating a startup in the life sciences exceedingly complex. This BioHaven seminar has convened a distinguished panel of venture capitalists that will discuss funding opportunities and investment strategies at different firms, including both corporate venture capital firms as well as traditional, to help entrepreneurs think about how to translate and commercialize transformational ideas in the life sciences into reality.
