After three months of mentoring, networking, and enhancing the venture with technical assistance, pitch coaching, and funding, the five NC BIOTECH Venture Challenge finalists will meet in Greensboro, NC at Triad BioNight to showcase their ventures and to learn which venture will be the NC BIOTECH Venture Challenge Statewide Award Recipient.
From the 2022 NC BIONEER State Winner:
“The exposure Plakous received through this Venture Challenge has continued to pay dividends for our company in numerous ways. The network we developed through the mentoring program as well as the insights gained in the positioning of the company and stress testing of our business plan remain on-going assets. I regularly reach out to individuals I worked with over the months of preparation for the program to act as a sounding board as we continue to advance the company through the regulatory, manufacturing, and clinical processes. Our relationships within the NCBiotech Center have also expanded through program awareness and financial support.”
