Biotechnology companies learn how to attract more VC

Christopher Anzalone, founder and CEO of The Benet Group in Washington, D.C., said the investment group looks for promising technology over all else. Nanotechnology looks particularly promising, with the federal government putting upward of a billion dollars into nanotech research annually.

But Bonsal said using public money to finance nanotech is probably premature. He cited NanoInk, a Chicago company formerly headed by Anzalone, which issued an initial public offering only to later withdraw it due to lack of interest. "There's capital," Anzalone said. "What's missing is good companies."
