Miami Beach, FL, United States, 2007/06/19 - Venture2 is sponsoring "Speed-Dating for Innovation" event for pre-screened healthcare entrepreneurs and technology firms. A great way for businesses and the technologies to come together and find potential matches.
A select group of pre-screened healthcare entrepreneurs and technology firms will participate in a unique Speed-Dating for Innovation event on August 9, 2007 in Delray Beach, FL; sponsored by Venture2, a unique new ventures company focused on connecting and commercializing innovative products and technologies for the consumer product markets. In a format similar to real Speed-Dating, rapid-paced introductory sessions will be followed by more in-depth sessions to explore collaborative opportunities with interested parties.
This event is attracting senior-level representatives from large, world-class consumer health companies. Up to six companies will be accepted. Companies that commit to participation by June 30, 2007, will assist in the final selection from twenty prospective candidate technology providers to create the final ten for the event.
To reach qualified entrepreneurs, Venture2 is conducting a global search via their proprietary network along with patent and database searches. This effort is instrumental in identifying game-changing health technologies that are ready for mass-market scale-up.
Some key benefits to participating companies and the selected technology entrepreneurs are:
• Companies gain rapid visibility to highly qualified entrepreneurs and pre-screened consumer health technologies
• Entrepreneurs gain access to leading consumer health companies that are actively searching for innovations
• This event is designed to move beyond “technology transactions” and develop ongoing relationships with proven entrepreneurs and technology experts
• Professionally facilitated by leading experts in open innovation and consumer health.
“Traditional Speed-Dating is a proven technique to help individuals find potential partners in a fast-paced, low-risk environment; bringing companies and entrepreneurs together is not much different”, said Michael Docherty, CEO of Venture2. “By creating a forum that makes it quick and easy for businesses and the technologies to come together and find potential matches, Venture2 is creating a win-win situation. Participants will benefit by exploring collaboration in an environment ideally suited to developing relationships, not just technology transactions.”
Speed-Dating for Innovation: Focus on Consumer Health Technologies will take place at The Launching Pad in one full-day session on Aug. 9, 2007 in Delray Beach, FL (near Palm Beach), with an optional networking event on Aug. 8. To learn more, please call or send an email to us.
