The UC Center for Accelerated Innovation (CAI) and UC Biomedical Research, Integration and Development (BRAID) are partnering with UCI Applied Innovation to host UC Pitch Day on June 28, 2019. The forum provides UC Faculty the opportunity to pitch advanced translational programs to a group of potential investors. Presentations will be in person at UC Irvine or by webcast. Successful applicants will receive extensive hands-on mentoring to develop a pitch deck for presentation to a group of selected and interested investors. Following Pitch Day, investors interested in projects will work with the faculty and Technology Transfer Office associated with that respective faculty's campus to determine whether terms can be reached for investment and potential company launch.
The application period is April 1-8, 2019. For more details, please refer to the RFA.
