The new B2B program, which will be geared toward the pipeline's early stage, will provide companies with an opportunity to share the trials and tribulations of taking a new discovery to the market with researchers from across the globe. The event will include opportunities for interaction between innovators and venture capitalists, including education on how to obtain funding and enter the beginning and middle phases of clinical trials. Additionally, attendees will receive guidance on technology transfer, patents and regulatory concerns.
