We are looking for original members and Board of Directors to help tell the story of DML in celebration.

Other upcoming events in the community…

CELS Forum- Building a Cross Border Business

September 10th – Are you running a promising Canadian life science start-up and seeking funding? Do you have access to incentives in Canada but need to consider additional options? The market and resources outside of Canada—specifically in the USA–are a natural target. While you proudly aspire to “Made in Canada” solutions, there are funding realities that might need to be addressed on the path to global commercialization of exceptional Canadian technologies. On September 10th, Canadian Entrepreneurs in Life Science will be hosting a seminar in Toronto that is also available via webinar. For more information and registration visit their site.
