Cornell BioPharma Network/Cornell Entrepreneur Network Joint Event
October 28, 2009 - 6:30pm - 9:30pm

Cornell Club, NYC

Open to: Cornell BioPharma Network members and Cornell Entrepreneur Network members in the Metro New York region only.

Attendees from the Cornell BioPharma Network and the Cornell Entrepreneur Network enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and networking at the first face-to-face event of the Cornell BioPharma Network.  Dr. Howard Fillit, Executive Director of the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF), presented on ADDF. ADDF is a pioneering “venture philanthropy” that directly invests in early-stage companies pursuing drugs and diagnostics for Alzheimer’s. In our post-crash era, in which the venture capital model seems broken, organizations like ADDF are emerging as a crucial source of funding for high risk biotech ventures.

This event was sponsored by Axinn Veltrop & Harkrider, Burns & Levinson, and Hoffmann & Baron.
