Investment & Commercialization Seminars

Every year Ag-West Bio assesses commercialization information and resource needs of its members that are engaged in commercializing technology and products. We use this 'needs assessment' to devise investment and commercialization seminars, where industry professionals and mentors are brought in to discuss pertinent subjects aimed at providing critical information and insights.

Examples of previous topics include: developing strategic alliances, commercializing disruptive technology, raising private equity, the art of deal making, and effective proforma development. In addition we host seminars highlighting new funding opportunities, where the funders present the details of the programs.
We partner with other industry stakeholders to host these events, and place a strong emphasis on ensuring the seminars provide substantial networking opportunities in addition to valuable information. In this way, these seminars link research to business, and new business to established mentors.
