About this event

New York City is rapidly emerging as a dynamic ecosystem for science & tech startups. The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) along with its funding partners recently launched The Life Sciences Funding Initiative; a $150 million fund that seeks to launch 15 to 20 breakthrough life science ventures by 2020. Venture Capital companies, like New York based Lux Capital, also recognizes the importance of start-ups rooted in science and tech, as demonstrated by their launch of a $350 million fund to find and develop them.

With the influx of investment into accelerating the growth of New York City’s science and tech ecosystem, investors often remark on how scientists and science startups often miss their opportunities because they lack the ability to distill and convey their research into language that the investor understands.

You know the scientific value of your research but not everyone else does. When you are asked “What is your research on?” are you transmitting your response clearly and concisely so that it is understood? How do you communicate the relevance of your work in the context of benefits to society and human health? How do you engage your audience knowing that all they care about is the “So what?” and “Why does it matter?” part of your message?

Authorea, a collaborative research writing platform, invites you to come learn from some of New York City's top Science, Tech and VC professionals on how to craft and pitch your scientific research.
