It's another big week here at Astia with our 8th annual Investor Forum this Thursday, January 14th in San Francisco. This exciting event gives 33 life science, clean tech, consumer and enterprise companies from the Astia Doing It Right program the opportunity to present to the investor community. We are proud of this year’s group and know that the investors who will be in attendance are anticipating the event - already three of the companies have secured funding and another three are in due diligence as a results of participating in the Astia program.
In addition to the presentations by our high-growth companies, there will also be a presentation by the Non Profit Global Health Research Foundation which was selected as a pro bono client by the Astia community for its innovative approach to health care in poor countries.
The Investor Forum is scheduled from 12pm-8pm - continuing into the evening to allow for the Angel community to fully engage. Tickets are still available here: http://www.astia.org/content/view/1439/1156/
As always, the Forum will be an exceptional opportunity to network with entrepreneurs, VCs, angel investors, Corporate VCs and senior execs of emerging companies.
