Attention Startups: Pitch to dozens of investors in one evening
Despite the macro-economic environment clouding the airwaves, entrepreneurship is booming in the Bay Area. The expanse of incubators like QB3 in Emeryville, StartX in Palo Alto, and Bayer’s CoLABorator in San Francisco are driving innovation locally.
Entrepreneurship is thriving; however capital access remains the number one issue for life science startup companies. As part of our ongoing effort to open doors for capital investment, we are inviting life science entrepreneurs to take advantage of an upcoming opportunity to pitch to dozens of investors over the course of an evening.
In collaboration with StartX Med, the Stanford University accelerator, BayBio is hosting the 9th Annual Life Sciences Entrepreneur and Investor Roundtables, July 11, in Palo Alto. Well known for its iconic ‘speed-dating’ format, the Roundtables targets corporate venture, angels and VCs who are actively investing in early stage life science companies. We welcome those entrepreneurs and investors that have made the program a success in the past and those who would like to take part of this dynamic evening for the first time. To date, we have secured 38 investors firms – a record number for the Roundtables.
We are very pleased with the turnout. Participating investors represent VCs, angels, sovereign wealth funds and corporate venture. In addition, we secured Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, which closed its fifteenth early-stage venture capital fund with $525 million in capital commitments.

At the recent California Biotech CEO Conference, one of the key takeaways was the imperative to stay connected to capital resources over the course of product development. For those entrepreneurs who are not yet in active fundraising mode, the Roundtables provide an opportunity to begin cultivating relationships with some of the leading investors in the field.
Entrepreneurs who may wish to tighten their pitch may wish to access the BayBio Expert Network for pro bono advice from an expert at www.baybioexpertnetwork.com. Don’t miss this opportunity to open the door to future growth. We’ll be collecting company profiles and sharing them with the attending investors prior to the program.
