Spring 2017 Business Matchmaking – Commercializing Life Sciences
May 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Bench to Bedside Initiative (BBI), Hacking Health NYC and our partner healthcare organizations bring you the “Commercializing Life Science – Business Matchmaking” event to gather a diverse group of people from academic research, technology, healthcare/medicine and the business communities to address innovation in healthcare.
What to Expect:
The purpose of the event is to form successful teams—comprised of specialists in business, legal, technology and medical research—who will work with patented life science technologies with BBI members.
Our keynote speaker is Piraye Yurttas Beim, Founder and CEO of Celmatix, a personalized medicine company focused on women’s health and fertility.
During the event you’ll hear one-minute pitches from inventors about their technologies and from founders looking for co-founders. Some founders and inventors will also present their work with a poster or interactive display. The event will have refreshments and networking.
BBI builds teams around patented technologies at Weill Cornell Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Rockefeller University. It began as a graduate student club in 2010 and has resulted in the creation of several seed-funded life sciences startups. Today it unites scientists from these medical universities and professionals in NYC interested in entrepreneurship and/or venture capital in the life sciences. BBI’s mission is to provide scientists in the community with the tools needed to translate their ideas into commercial products that will benefit patients.
