The search is on for the next ViaCell, MinuteClinic, Icagen, Xenogen, Athenix and Achillion to join the 475+ members of the Springboard Portfolio.  Priority Deadline to apply: April 3, 2012.

"Start with an international network of trusted entrepreneurs, investors, and other experts at your disposal," said Kay Koplovitz, Springboard co-founder and Chair, "add to that 11 years of expertise in facilitating quality connections, and you get Springboard: your own Personal Advisory Board.  We look forward to leveraging this network for the newest class of life science entrepreneurs that will pass through the Springboard pipeline this year building invaluable connections and learning how to raise capital."
