  1. 1. GLOBAL June 20-21, 2007 HEALTHCARE Intercontinental Hotel INVESTING Cleveland, OH CONFERENCE Growing Companies Globally Building International Deal Flow Sourcing, Building, and Financing Start-Ups • BIOTECH • MEDICAL DEVICES • HEALTH CARE SERVICES Uniting venture capitalists, healthcare growth companies, and business development executives from the U.S. and internationally CO-PRESENTERS: In comparison to other high tech sectors, health care venture capitalists are just starting to find, build, and finance companies “globally.” Those on the leading edge of this trend are discovering rich deal sources and creative company financing options overseas. They are also profiting from the diverse array of regulatory and reimbursement environments that exist across the world. No forum has been convened to bring together the leading-edge investors, institutions, and companies that are investing in biotech, life sciences, medical devices, health care services and health care technology companies across the world. BioEnterprise and International Business Forum proudly present the Inaugural Globalization of Healthcare Investing Conference to address the issues surrounding growing companies globally. This conference will unite investors and emerging companies from across the world. In addition to leading investors sharing strategies and perspectives, a showcase focused on foreign-originated, venture-backed mid to later stage healthcare start-ups ready to enter the U.S. market will be included. Hear how VCs are managing "global" start-ups, operating in multiple financial and regulatory markets and sourcing international deal flow.
  2. 2. Cleveland was chosen as a conference location because of the leading-edge institutions and intermediaries focused on attracting, financing, and co-locating international start-ups. Its health care institutions such as The Cleveland Clinic, were among the first to create operations and alliances for health care in foreign countries (Middle East, Latin America, and Europe). And Cleveland is on the investment map as the level of venture activity has risen to the amounts seen in other national hotbeds ($171 million in deals last year). In addition, Cleveland is a hub for innovation and collaboration among its institutions.
