SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Dedicating this year's Venture Forum to the life sciences industry, Larta Institute and Burrill & Company have announced a partnership in developing and producing the 2008 Life Sciences Venture Forum, which will showcase the most promising and innovative seed and early-stage life sciences companies from the U.S. and around the globe. The 2008 Life Sciences Venture Forum will take place on May 30, 2008, at the Santa Clara Convention Center and will provide venture capitalists, angel investors and industry representatives the opportunity to get a first look at companies that are not seen on the regular conference circuit and cannot be accessed via traditional pipelines.

"This partnership unites the best of the best," said Rohit Shukla, CEO of Larta Institute. "It extends the reach, brand and credibility of Burrill & Company to the world of early-stage innovations and Larta Institute's own focus and access to that pool of talent," he added. "With this partnership, the Venture Forum grows several notches."

G. Steven Burrill, CEO of Burrill & Company, said, "Different areas of discovery are converging in the life sciences. There is no more exciting a time for emerging innovations to fill large holes in the realization of these trends." He added that "the 2008 Life Sciences Venture Forum promises to be an important platform for demonstration and feedback of these innovations, and we are excited to be a part of it."

Now 14 years strong, the Venture Forum is the largest and longest-running showcase of early stage innovation and entrepreneurship. It is the must-attend event for those seeking access to untapped early-stage deal flow from around the world.
