The Rocky Mountain Life Science Investor & Partnering Conference (RMLIPC) is September 21-22 at the Brown Palace Hotel.

Denver, CO, September 07, 2011 --(PR.com)-- More than thirty of the industry’s leading investors and strategic partners will attend presentations by the region’s most innovative life science companies at the 2011 Rocky Mountain Life Science Investor and Partnering Conference (RMLIPC), September 21-22 at the Brown Palace Hotel, Denver. The announcement is made by Holli Riebel (formerly Baumunk), President and CEO of the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) who says, “Leading biotech, device, diagnostic and pharma investors from across the country and world will be coming to Denver to create the newest deals and shape the future landscape of the life science industry.”

The conference will present a strong slate of Rocky Mountain region companies to the investors. Thirty-one companies were selected to present from over fifty applicants spanning a range of sectors within the industry.

“We’ve encouraged investors to come see all the Rocky Mountain region has to offer, as the largest and most advanced area between both coasts, garnering more than $11.5 billion dollars in financings and acquisitions since the end of 2007. Our bioscience companies are some of the most successful up and coming companies in the nation,” Riebel said. “RMLIPC 2011 is a great opportunity to visit Colorado and connect in real-time.”

Investors will listen to 15-minute presentations from each company highlighting their products and goals followed by a question and answer session with selected investor panelists. Investors will also have ample opportunity to network and meet individually with the companies. This conference offers both breadth and depth for investment and partnership opportunities.
