“It’s a great venue for networking first and foremost.  This conference has introduced us to a number of people that we would never have seen otherwise, as well as collaborations with our portfolio companies and other portfolio companies. So there is good energy in the air, and a very constructive environment.”
Dr. Douglas Lind, Managing Partner, GBP Capital

“The level and quality of folks that are real venture capitalists, manage in private equity; Folks that are actively looking for opportunities.”
— Wolf Shlagman, CEO, Consult a Doctor

“The quality of the feedback given to entrepreneurs by investors prior to “showtime” was unparalleled in my experience. I highly recommend this conference.”
Mary Lincoln Campbell, Managing Director, EDF Ventures 

“I have seen about 50-60 business opportunities both in pharmaceuticals, in Healthcare/IT and also medical devices, and I have met so many different venture capitalists and heard their perspective, so that really is and eye opener for me today.”
Iqbal Hussain, President, Meridian Laboratories

“YoungStartUp’s conference was a well structured and organized event with a very high bar for qualifying ventures selected to present. This is the major issue for VC’s to consider when selected events to attend as many are diluted with too many companies, many of which have not vetted their concepts.”
— Konstantine A. Drakonakis, PE // Director // LaunchCapital, LLC

“I thought the attendance with investors that are active was impressive, and we had a number of good conversations. I think that in this day and age looking for investors for whom a specific value proposition is a fit, is a little of a needle in a haystack, and there were a few needles in the haystack, that was good.”
— Walter Greenblatt, Hygeia Therapeutics
