Event Description
Join the Foundation for Health Advancement on Thursday, December 16 from 12–1:15 p.m. ET, for their next Innovate and Educate event. This event will not only expose STEM oriented graduate students and post-docs to the role venture capital may play in funding the inventions they are creating in their academic and research programs, but will also explain the types of jobs that may be available within the venture capital ecosystem for individuals that have a STEM background. The panel is made up of professionals that work in venture capital that also have PhDs in STEM oriented subjects. They will share their experiences in funding and supporting STEM oriented startup companies and share their experiences for how they navigated from PhD scientists to landing jobs in the venture capital industry.

While this program is oriented towards higher-education STEM students and post-docs, it is open to all students or individuals that may be interested in accessing venture capital or finding a job in venture capital.

Moderated by Mike Wiley, vice president, Foundation Venture Capital Group.

This free event will be held virtually via Zoom (link to be provided later to registrants).

Presented by the Foundation for Health Advancement, along with event partners Rutgers iJobs and Princeton Innovation Center BioLabs.
