These regional luminaries will describe financing their neuro companies through public placement, venture capital, angels, grants, patient advocacy organizations, and crowdfunding. We expect a dynamic interactive discussion with the audience about what’s working, what’s generalizable, and what changes are coming for our entrepreneurial NeuroNeighborhood.
Be sure to mark this event on your calendar, and we’ll see you there!
