Regen Med VC Meet-up

June 24, 2013

Presenters Announced! 
First Look at Regenerative Medicine’s Hottest Early-Stage Start-ups
Join us for an intimate and informal afternoon featuring a discussion on key points for investing in regen med, quick pitches by a dozen of the industry’s cutting-edge, early-stage companies, and a chance to weigh-in on what you as an investor feel would both de-risk the funding opportunity as well as help propel each company to the next level. This interactive program, held at the CIRM offices in Mission Bay, is meant to serve as a casual meet and greet for investors with some of RM’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs as well as an opportunity to learn more about the industry overall and the future of the field.

This meeting is invitation-only for credentialed investors, however, RSVP is required. Please contact Laura Parsons at if you are interested in attending.
