Connecting Companies to Capital

In September of 2024, Colorado BioScience Association will host the highly anticipated Rocky Mountain Life Sciences Investor & Partnering Conference.

High-profile angel investors, venture capitalists, and representatives from large life sciences companies converge in the Colorado mountains to learn about new breakthroughs coming out of the Rocky Mountain Region from emerging life sciences companies in biotech, pharma, medical device, diagnostic, ag bio, and animal health.

The dynamic event offers investors and companies the opportunity to get to know each other through formal presentations, one-on-one partnering, and informal networking in a relaxed mountain environment.

The event reinforces CBSA’s commitment to Capital + Growth, supporting access to capital at all stages of development, and commercialization for life sciences companies.
