Presentation: The Best Is Yet To Fund

  1. ”Passion Capital” is moving from being the source of venture philanthropy to be the source of equity funding of new health companies.
  2. The advent of “crowdfunding” in the U.S. and other countries means that more people are able to invest in for profit companies working in therapeutics, diagnostics, health IT and care management and other areas they care about.
  3. The so called Valley of Death can now become the Bridge of Life as passionate investors replace  venture capitalists who have abandoned the space.
