2 Venture Capital Investment Events, 2 Days, 1 Venue

On May 16 – 17, 2017, in Ann Arbor, MI, the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation and The University of Michigan, in conjunction with the 36th Annual Michigan Growth Capital Symposium, held the 2017 Coulter Investment Forum.

This 2017 joint-conference was an extraordinary opportunity for startup founders to meet with angel investors and venture capital firms from across the U.S. More than 600 active investors, founders, CEO’s, technology transfer professionals and related industry executives were in attendance over the course of the forum. Company participation in the Coulter Investment Forum is restricted to those with innovations that had been vetted through the Translational Research Partnership Program at one of our sixteen university partners using the Coulter Commercialization Process.

Solutions ranged from device to imaging, diagnostics to therapeutics. MGCS highlighted Midwest companies. Together more than 60 companies that spanned the Life Sciences and Tech industries were showcased. In addition, a stellar lineup of venture capital, entrepreneurial and University Tech Transfer leaders were featured during the two plenary sessions and four panel discussions.
