Larger Than Life Science is a free monthly event series open to everyone interested in building a strong support network for San Diego’s life science and healthcare innovators.

This month’s theme: Critical Cash
Non-dilutive funding is any kind of financing that does not require giving up ownership of the company. Biotech and life science startups often rely on government industry grants, including the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, which are designed to enable the commercialization of cutting-edge technologies. Other sources of non-dilutive funding include foundations, industry partnerships, and venture debt.

While these can be important sources of cash, non-dilutive funds are not “free” and can have some unintended consequences and costs. Join us to hear a variety of perspectives – entrepreneur, investor, entrepreneurial support organization and legal expert –to learn how to secure and deploy this type of “critical cash.”

Come for the people and programs. Stay for a beer. Leave with your next big breakthrough!
