How does venture capital work in biotech?

Event 9/23 and online Q&A with Dr. Janis Naeve of Amgen Ventures

By Abby Tabor | Science Journalist at MyScienceWork

Receiving venture capital funding is often critical to the success of a startup. Coming at it from the other direction—deciding where to attribute such funding—can also be an interesting science-related career path. That is what Dr. Janis Naeve has found. The next AIMS speaker, she will be joining us tomorrow, Wednesday, September 23, to talk about her work with Amgen Ventures and about the criteria that help a company get funded. Come meet her in person, or ask your questions online, here.
