What is Speed Dating?
WBBA is playing matchmaker by bringing investors and entrepreneurs together. Each investor will hear 5 minute pitches from each company and will provide feedback on the technology, business model and investment strategy. Each participating company is early-stage (less than $5M), has been selected from an application process, and has been invited to attend a pitch clinic.
Doors open for investors at 3:30 p.m. on March 2nd. Wine and light appetizers will be ready for you! At 4:00pm, the companies will arrive, and we'll kick-off speed dating. The event goes until 5:30 p.m., when you can join the Life Science Innovation Northwest Industry Networking Reception on the 5th floor landing.

What is the Poster Session?
The Poster Session at Life Science Innovation Northwest 2011 will occur throughout the conference on March 2 - 3. The poster session is for pre-emerging companies. A pre-emerging company is just getting started, may not yet be incorporated and/or may not yet have received private funding, but has a committed entrepreneur with an idea that is being explored as the basis for a company. The poster session is a fantastic opportunity to view cutting edge innovation from the most promising regional inventors and entrepreneurs.
