Long Island Capital Alliance Announces Participants for Biotech Technology Transfer Capital Forum: Event to Be Held on June 14 in Collaboration With Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

Melville, NY | Posted on June 8th, 2013

CSHL scientists will present some of the exciting new technologies developed there to biotech investors, and investors will have an opportunity to meet and establish relationships with the CSHL officials and scientists. Each of the underlying technologies LICA selected for presentation at the event is believed to represent catalysts for significant growth which will be attractive to investors and other financial backers. CSHL is continuing to expand its outreach and partnerships toward building locally-based companies around its technologies using the "technology transfer" concept.

Technology transfer involves the use of inventions, processes, and knowledge developed by subject matter experts to create and enhance private sector businesses. Technology transfer involves a wide range of approaches to get technologies to market, including licensing to larger, more established companies, establishing equity transactions to provide technology to startup businesses, and entering into research and development agreements, including Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programs, to collaboratively advance the technology toward commercialization.

A panel of investors and technology transfer experts will describe the process of financing and building companies around technological discoveries.
