The New York Academy of Sciences

A Special Invitation

We would like to invite you to attend what we believe will be the premier medical device event for entrepreneurs, corporate acquirers, and investors: the Northeast MedTech Conference "Evolutionary Road: From Invention to Exit in Medical Devices."

As you know, the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions are rich in clinical expertise, innovative technologies, and savvy investors. What's been lacking until now is a forum to bring all of them together in a program dedicated to sharing ideas and networking with peers.

The half-day event is organized by the Life Sciences Angel Network at the New York Academy of Sciences and Elsevier Business Intelligence Group (publishers of In Vivo, Start-Up, Medtech Insight, and The Gray Sheet).

Location: The New York Academy of Sciences (250 Greenwich Street, 40th Fl, New York, NY 10007)

Time: 1:00 PM on Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Keynote Speaker: Martin Leon, MD, Director, Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy, Columbia University Medical Center / New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Focus & Mission: To provide a unique opportunity for constructive discussions and networking for medical device entrepreneurs, CEOs of young start-ups, venture-backed companies, business development executives from large Medtech companies, as well as angels, venture capitalists, and corporate investors.

Each panel is comprised of entrepreneurs and investors to provide both perspectives on the challenges of building and funding medical devices companies.

• Panel 1: Getting Started (Tech Transfer and Seed Financing)
• Panel 2: Your First Institutional Investor Experience
• Panel 3: Heading for the Finish Line Networking
