Tobin Arthur, CEO of angelMD, will be participating on a crowdfunding panel as part of the Texas Life Science Venture Forum. The event is hosted by BioHouston, Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship, and the Texas Healthcare and Bioscience Institute.
angelMD is a crowdfunding platform that connects physicians and medical startups in the field of biotech, medical device and healthcare technology. MedTech crowdfunding is a fast growing niche in the crowdfunding spectrum of funding verticals.
“Texas is one of the strongest healthcare innovation and care delivery markets in the world and angelMD is deeply active throughout the state,” said Arthur. “Part of the conference is focused on answering the question of whether crowd-funding is an effective option for medical startups needing to raise capital and we look forward to offering our perspective.”
The Texas Life Science Forum is taking place February 20, 2014 from 8:00 to 6:30PM at BioScience Research Collaborative in Houston, Texas. The event showcases early-stage technology companies and provides companies with exposure to investors, partners, mentors, customers, and other individuals who support the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
