2017 BioCrossroads New Venture Competition
The BioCrossroads New Venture Competition, now in its sixth year, encourages life sciences and healthcare entrepreneurial activity by providing awards and recognition to promising new life sciences and health information technology ventures. Since 2012, the competition has awarded more than $300,000 to twenty start-up companies, which have gone on to secure over $26.5 million in follow-on funding.
NVC companies will enter a highly competitive process to gain access to cash awards as well as key industry contacts, the Indiana Seed Fund II staff and the fund’s network of resources that provide early-stage, strategic support.
The winner of the competition will be awarded a cash prize of $25,000 and have the opportunity to make a presentation to the ISF II investment committee. Second Prize: $15,000 cash. Third Prize: $10,000 cash. In addition to the cash prizes, all semi-finalist and finalist companies will be invited to attend the summit and pre-summit reception as guests of BioCrossroads and also be highlighted in the BioCrossroads newsletter.
