It takes a special kind of entrepreneur to bring life science innovations across the spectrum from discovery to development to delivery.

It also takes a special kind of investor.  We call them "White Hat's".

The White Hat Life Science Investor Conference brings together life science innovators with potential investors representing family offices, angel investors, strategic investors, and venture capital firms.
