Life Sciences Investor Pitch
January 31, 2013 | 6:00-8:30 PM | Two Palo Alto Square, Palo Alto
Event Sponsor: Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP


The Life Science Investor Pitch programs through VC Taskforce offer an opportunity for entrepreneurs seeking start up funding to pitch in front of a distinguished panel of investors. VC Taskforce and Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP have partnered to bring to you a scintillating program series to bring entrepreneurs and investors together in the life science fields. The evening will be exciting and a terrific learning experience for all entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs learn what investors are looking for in a pitch presentation.

Entrepreneurs seeking capital will pitch for 2 minutes in front of the investor panel. This is followed by 5 minutes of Q&A and then non-rebuttal feedback by the panel. A score of 1-5 is given to each presenting company by each panel member. Please note that pitching time limits will be strictly enforced!

Investors come and listen to entrepreneurs’ pitches. You never know where you’ll find your next deal. Find out how our panel of investors rates entrepreneurs’ pitches; which investors pass and for what reasons; and which entrepreneurs other investors want to talk to ASAP. Please let us know if you would like to participate on one of our Life Science Investor Pitch panels.

This is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to network with investors, present their company, and hear first-hand what it takes to raise early-stage capital in 2012. If you are an entrepreneur in a startup that is currently seeking capital and would like to present your best 2 minute elevator pitch to a panel of investors, you must register in advance and have confirmation from the program manager that you are on the list of presenters. The maximum number of presenters is limited to ten.
