Venture Capitalists, Corporate Executives and Entrepreneurs to Connect on Latest Technology Innovations at the 2007 Venture Forum

Abstract:
Close to 1,000 high technology, and life science innovators, venture capital firms, government agency representatives and corporate investors will meet in San Francisco May 1-2 at The Venture Forum's ( http://www.theventureforum.com/ ) annual event to connect early stage innovators with funding sources. Since its inception 13 years ago, The Venture Forum has facilitated $600 million in venture capital, corporate and government investment, thereby helping innovators move high-value technologies closer to commercialization.

During the two-day event, the Venture Forum will "offer seed and startup capital investors a glimpse into the future of every major technology sector, from nanotechnology to the Internet," explains Rohit Shukla, Larta Institute's CEO. "We believe entrepreneurs are our seed corn, the genesis of technology companies of the future, and we will connect them with private investors and strategic partners so they can bring their innovation to the commercial marketplace." This year's forum will feature a truly special keynote "conversation": Vinod Khosla, founder of Khosla Ventures, in conversation with Matthew Bishop, Chief Business Writer and American Business Editor of The Economist. Other keynoters for the event are Steve Burrill, CEO of Burrill & Company, Scott Horsley, Business Correspondent for National Public Radio, William O'Brien, Senior Vice President NASDAQ, and Henry Chesbrough, Executive Director, Center for Open Innovation, Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley.
