University of California Pitch Day - Nov. 30,2018
UC BRAID and UC CAI are partnering with UCI Applied Innovation to host a forum for UC Faculty to pitch advanced translational programs to a group of potential investors.
This program proposes to extend the UC CAI activities beyond heart, lung, and blood diseases across all therapeutic areas. Therapeutic areas can cover any health condition where there is an unmet medical need or the potential for significant improvement over current treatments, diagnostics, devices, tools or services.
Successful applicants will receive extensive hands-on mentoring to develop a pitch deck for presentation to a group of selected and interested investors. Following Pitch Day, investors interested in projects will work with the faculty and Technology Transfer Office associated with that respective faculty's campus to determine whether terms can be reached for investment and potential company launch.
Each faculty applicant will submit a 1-page description of their technology. Submission period is September 17-24, 2018.
Eligibility: Faculty in all series at all ranks at UC Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco are eligible. Postdoctoral scholars are eligible to submit as Co-PI with a faculty PI.
