Safeguard Scientifics to Sponsor and Attend Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation Entrepreneurs' Forum

March 31, 2014 03:00 PM EST

Penn Medicine, UPstart at CTT, Safeguard Scientifics and First Round Capital are excited to announce the Entrepreneurs’ Forum. Our goal is to create the connections and support that startups need to succeed in health care. The Forum will provide unique access to health system and UPenn leaders, regional investors and key industry partners who can help companies secure talent, clinical access, data, funding, and business models.

The first half of the Forum will highlight selected applicants in formal 10-minute pitch sessions. But our objective is to support many more entrepreneurs than just those selected to present. The second half of the forum will be an open networking session set up to maximize the collision rate between startups with needs and people who can help. Beyond the industry experts, we're partnering with schools and clubs from across the Penn campus - from engineering and design to Wharton and the nursing school - to attract talented individuals and thought leaders with the skills and interest to accelerate new companies in this space.

LOCATION:

Smilow Center for Translational Research, University City, Philadelphia, PA
