About the Showcase

Preview the next wave of bioscience start-ups in this fast-paced program comprised of ten emerging, seed and early-stage companies. Qualified ventures will include those evolving out of technology transfer offices or companies taking their first steps along the commercialization pathway, conducting proof-of-concept research, developing a prototype, or otherwise executing their business and product development plans. Listen to the start-ups make their pitches, hear the critiques by distinguished judges, and learn about exciting new technologies and products.
