Bob More, who heads venture investing for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will provide an overview of the foundation’s key areas of interest, and describe best practices for those seeking funding. More leads the foundation’s global health division, which aims to harness advances in science and technology to save lives in developing countries. The foundation works with partners to deliver proven tools—including vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics—that are affordable and reliable. Health investments are focused on such infectious diseases as HIV, polio, TB, dengue, and malaria, as well as diagnostics and health IT ideas that bring health interventions to those who need them most. Registration and networking begins at 10:30 am. More information and online registration is here.
