At LSN’s next RESI Conference, the Venture Philanthropy Panel will bring together five leaders at top venture philanthropy organizations from around the U.S. to discuss their experience with impact investing—currently one of the most talked about funding models for early stage life science investments. Typically funding on a multiyear basis, these heavily donor-funded organizations are forging a path for significant results on a quick timeline.

Moderated by Brian Horsburgh, Trustee at the NeuroNetworks Fund, the audience will hear from:

Panelists will discuss key points in investing for impact. What do venture philanthropy investors look for in initial correspondence? What goes into the process of investment selection and due diligence? What value can VPs provide your company in addition to capital? The session will go over what metrics are most important in evaluating progress, and how grantees & donors are involved in analyzing these results. If venture philanthropy investment is part of the plan to get your company funded, this panel is a great opportunity to update your roadmap for navigating these organizations.
