NCI SBIR Investor Forum
The 2012 Investor Forum was the 3rd annual event organized by the NCI SBIR program to connect some of the most promising SBIR Awardees with the external investors and strategic partners that are critical to the awardees moving their technologies towards the marketplace. The most recent Investor Forum was held at Stanford University on November 9th, 2010. 14 NCI SBIR awardees were selected to present at the 2010 forum and there were over 200 attendees including about 150 representatives of the investment and biotech firms. Attendees included high level professionals from Big Pharma, VaC firms, Angel investors, large banks, disease foundations, etc. Four significant investment/partnership deals that were signed as a result of interactions at the forum and a number of discussions are ongoing. Thus, the success of the 2010 forum has strengthened interest in going back to the Bay Area for this year’s forum.
The Investor Forum was an exclusive event designed to connect the strongest and most promising NCI SBIR companies with life science investors and strategic partners. In 2010, relationships established at the NCI SBIR Investor Forum resulted in more than $225 million in deals to advance companies on the cutting-edge of cancer technology development.
