2012 WBT Innovation Marketplace Presenters Announced

September 6th, 2012 |

WBT Innovation Marketplace has emerged as a premier event showcasing the largest collection of vetted and mentored companies and technologies emanating from top universities, labs, research institutions, and the private sector from across the US and around the globe.

The WBT is deal-focused and diverse, showcasing companies and technologies that vary by geography, funding source, and type of research institution. Participating technologies, each supported by private funding, federal R&D grants or both.  Technologies are selected by – and presented to – over 100 seasoned venture investors and Fortune 500 licensing scouts representing a variety of industries.

Each WBT brings together the venture capital community, corporate licensees, angel investors, state seed managers, federal lab researchers, university researchers, tech transfer and licensing professionals and international trade and technology organizations from around the US and the globe.  WBT is one of the few events that bring together such a comprehensive group of investors, innovators, and deal flow.

Selected presenters for the 2012 event being held on Oct 24-26th in San Diego have recently been announced.  Two of Discovery Parks’ Generator 2.0 tenants have been chosen: Shailah Interactive and viDA Therapeutics.

This is a unique and excellent opportunity and we wish Shailah Interactive and viDA Therapeutics the best of luck.
