Organizers of the Michigan Growth Capital Symposium today unveiled plans to host its 2017 conference with the Coulter Investment Forum. As a result of the partnership, the symposium will showcase 30 emerging life sciences companies that resulted from Coulter Foundation Research Partnerships at 16 national universities.
Together, MGCS and Coulter will host over 70 companies and 600 attendees from throughout the Midwest.
“The Midwest continues to be a hotbed for some of the most innovative and motivated entrepreneurs in the world. As a result, the symposium attracts the best of the best in the venture capital community year after year,” says David Brophy, professor of finance at U-M and a founding director of MGCS says.
“In addition to the great content and resources we have been able to provide to this audience for more than 30 years, we are honored to join forces with the Coulter Foundation to add even more dimension and excitement to the two-day event.”
The annual symposium is hosted by the University of Michigan’s Center for Venture Capital and Private Equity Finance and the Zell Lurie Institute at the Ross School of Business, with support from the Michigan Venture Capital Association.
Applications for companies to present at the event, to be held May 16-17 at the Marriott Resort located at 1275 S Huron St. in Ypsilanti, will be available online in January 2017.
