I really enjoyed the opportunity itself to apply and meet with investors I wouldn’t otherwise have access to, like AbbVie Ventures today. Please keep up the good work! And schedule more VC's for 2017.
Just a note of sincere thanks. The quality of the speaker and the content was timely, relevant and useable information, also the JLABS space & organization of the event was impressive. My thanks for the time they put into these events.
I felt all of the speakers were incredibly prepared and I got a lot out of the experience in general. The speakers were approachable after the event and offered practical advice to our questions. The event was thoughtfully structured and it was great to have so many interesting people in the room.
