Quoting from the Denver Post article by Steve Raabe:
"Saving lives with battlefield triage tools. Diagnosing cancer long before it spreads. Installing heart valves without open-heart surgery. Inventors of those technologies, and more, presented their best attributes Thursday in 20-minute pitches designed to entice venture capital. Thirty-one companies — many based at the Bioscience Park Center at Fitzsimons in Aurora — showed off their potential to prospective financiers at the Rocky Mountain Life Science Investor & Partnering Conference at the Brown Palace Hotel. The session was especially timely, officials said, because a struggling economy and volatile stock market have added competitiveness to biotech financing."
