The Tri-Valley Life Sciences Summit Returns to Veeva Systems in Pleasanton To Celebrate and Fuel Entrepreneur-Driven Economic Growth

 Tri-Valley’s Preeminent Life Sciences Start-Up Event Showcases Region’s VC Growth

PLEASANTON, CA – September 15, 2022 – Since the last Tri-Valley Life Sciences Summit in 2019 attracted over 250 attendees, it was a no-brainer to return for 2022.  Despite the pandemic, the Tri-Valley area saw $1.62B in capital raised from 2020 to 2022.  Tri-Valley life sciences companies displayed not only resilience, but growth, in the face of many challenges, with capital raised in the life sciences sector reflecting an >30% increase in 2021 over 2020.

To recognize and propel this progress, the Tri-Valley Life Sciences Summit 2022 will kick off again on October 13, showcasing some of the Tri-Valley’s most promising life sciences companies and start-ups — as well as offer advice on how the founders and vendors from the wider Bay Area can join in on the Tri-Valley’s success.

The summit will present an unparalleled inside look at the Tri-Valley’s burgeoning life sciences industry — an economic analysis from Mirador Capital Partners showed that last year alone, there was $770M in capital provided to the area’s life sciences companies. This upcoming summit offers a glimpse at potential venture capital investments and career moves for Tri-Valley residents and Bay Area residents at large for 2022 and beyond.

“The Tri-Valley has developed a reputation as an ideal location to start and grow life sciences businesses,” said James Langford, Principal at Tri-Valley Ventures and Director of Research at Mirador Capital Partners. “We are continuing to see an increasing amount of innovation and even higher quality of early stage life science companies start their companies here which further strengthens an already robust regional  life science ecosystem.”

The Tri-Valley Life Sciences Summit will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13 at Veeva Systems, 4280 Hacienda Drive in Pleasanton, California. Tickets are free, but registration is required. Hosted by Veeva Systems and sponsored by Tri-Valley Ventures and Mirador Capital Partners, the summit will open with an analysis of the life sciences in the Tri-Valley investment landscape,  The keynote event is a fireside chat with Ben Hindson, CSO, co-founder, and president of 10X Genomics, discussing the various personal and company transitions going from 10X Genomics’ foundation to its current state as a publicly-traded company.

This will be followed by a panel discussion sponsored by Engine Room and moderated by Engine Room co-founder Carole-Lynn Glass examining how Tri-Valley life sciences entrepreneurs and ecosystem leaders overcame obstacles or corrected course while building their companies.

The region has seen continued growth in the life sciences field since 2019, including $1.92B raised in late stage capital and $370M in the earlier stages. These figures include a number of exciting transitions for local life sciences startups including Movano’s IPO, Raydiant Oximetry and Iris Vision’s Series A raises, and the acquisition of Unchained Labs.
