Event Preview

What do entrepreneurs, mathematicians, software engineers, physicists, physicians, biologists, anatomists, angels, venture capitalists and bankers have in common?


Entrepreneurs dream and bring the dreams to reality. Physicists invent the technology. Electrical engineers design and make the hardware. Mathematicians create the algorithms. Software engineers write the programs for computers to process the data. Physicians, biologists and anatomists interpret the images, diagnose patients and prescribe cures. Angels start the entrepreneurs on their way. Venture capitalists fund the entrepreneurs to commercial success. The bankers take care of the piles of money the entrepreneurs, angels and venture capitalists make on bringing the technology to the health care marketplace.

On December 8, 2012, the Caltech Entrepreneurs Forum presents a stimulating and revealing program on the latest in technology and entrepreneurial opportunities in medical imaging. The technology is fascinating and the opportunities boundless. Don’t miss this great program.
