Once again, Midwest states biotechnology associations are joining with BIO to bring a premier venture forum to Mid-America. BIO Mid-America VentureForum will be held in St. Louis, MO, May 3-5 at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel.

The objective of this conference is to showcase the Midwest biotechnology scene composed of early and late stage companies to top venture capitalists. The states involved in this collaboration include Colorado, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Wisconsin.

In addition to exposing the Midwest biotechnology scene to venture capital firms in the local region, the conference will also bring a national audience comprising the most prestigious firms. Moreover, these firms will have the opportunity to review top of the line life science companies from all over America.

To ensure high quality deal flow, an advisory board, made up of equity capital leaders, will review and evaluate the corporate profiles of companies through an application process. Selected entrepreneurs will also attend regional BIO Venture Forum Boot Camps to be intensively coached and provided with the tools needed to refine their presentations and grow their enterprises.

This forum is distinguished by its unique network of combined efforts among the states of the Midwest and the Midwest Healthcare Investment Network. It is the conference that brings high-quality life science companies in Mid-America to the full attention of the national investment community.

Ken Cutler will moderate a panel.
