The Health Innovators' Meetup is a monthly series of In - Person informal meetings brought to you by Applied Pharmaceutical Innovation and the Health Innovation Hub.

Location: 4th-floor Enterprise Square, University of Alberta's downtown campus.

It brings together health innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, leaders, service providers, talent, and enthusiasts to converse on human health innovation-related topics.

"Wonderful, I managed to get some face-to-face time with several people who have been on my radar for a while now... definitely opened some doors!"
"The HIH folks do a great job of hosting, making everyone feel welcome, and creating an event where people are encouraged to mingle and network."
"It was good to see so many familiar faces. Really appreciated the topics and speakers."

Every month, there is going to be a different topic and a different panel. This meetup will give an opportunity to expand on the innovation stories happening here in Edmonton and also highlight the challenges our innovators and entrepreneurs are facing.

The topic for Meetup#9: Get To Know Your Investors

Finding the right investors when raising capital as an entrepreneur is not an easy task. The questions you might ask yourself are:

  • How to approach investors and where to find them?
  • How early should you start connecting and building a relationship with them?
  • What are the investors looking for when deciding who to invest in?
  • How to choose the right investor for you?

Join our Meetup on February 16th to get into the minds of our investors-panelists, learn how to strategize when targeting investors, get your questions answered, and expand your network.
