The State of Venture Capital in the Life Sciences

A highlight of the 2023 BioUtah Entrepreneur & Investor Summit was a panel of local and nationally recognized venture capitalists who shared their expertise and outlook for life sciences investment. The panel, included Karey Barker, founding managing director of Cross Creek; James Buxton, principal of NEA; Art Pappas, CEO/managing partner of Pappas Capital; and Israel Rollings, managing parter of Aligned Health Ventures. The discussion was robust and very salient to the audience of innovators and startups looking to secure capital. Attendees also took advantage of networking with all the VCs at the Summit.
