Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

February, 2012

oundation announces a comprehensive, two-day educational experience for founders
of early-stage medical device, therapeutics, diagnostics and digital health companies

Life science startups face more complex and daunting hurdles than new enterprises in non-regulated industries do. To help aspiring and early-stage life science entrepreneurs address these challenges, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation will hold a Kauffman Life Science Ventures Summit June 22-23, 2012.

The Foundation announced a call for applications today for the inaugural Summit, scheduled at the Mission Bay Conference Center at the University of California-San Francisco.

"We surveyed early-stage and seasoned life science entrepreneurs to find out what they considered critical needs for starting their companies, and we built an agenda around their feedback," said Dominique Pahud, director, advancing innovation at the Kauffman Foundation. "We will answer the critical questions that founders must address to start and grow viable life science companies. Every minute of this event will focus on helping founders create a path to successfully bring their
innovations to market."

Industry experts and successful entrepreneurs will provide practical guidance on commercializing innovations in each of four sectors: medical device, therapeutics, diagnostics, and digital health. Speakers and panelists representing each industry sector will share lessons, advice and insights. Speakers include Steve Blank, serial entrepreneur and author; Stephen Spielberg, deputy commissioner for medical products and tobacco at the Food & Drug Administration; Paul Yock,
founder, Stanford Biodesign; Karl Handelsman, managing director, CMEA Capital; Kim Popovits,
CEO, Genomic Health; and more.
