Biotech Entrepreneurship Coalition (BEC) and Biotech Connection Los Angeles (BCLA) are extremely pleased to announce the BEC fourth seminar for 2018-2019 series. The seminar will feature Matthew Crowley, an experienced venture lawyer. Matthew will talk about how to network and draw the attention of investors.
Crowley regularly represents startups, with startup clients representing at least 70% of his practice.
Crowley began his career in San Francisco at the height of the dotcom boom, practicing law with corporate finance groups including Pillsbury Madison & Sutro (now Pillsbury Winthrop) and Morrison & Foerster. After eight years of private practice, Crowley moved into senior management with Evoke Software in 2001, serving as vice president and general counsel. In 2004, Crowley joined the management team at Technicolor Home Entertainment Services in Camarillo, California, a division with revenues of $2 billion annually. In 2006, Crowley established Crowley Corporate Legal Strategy to offer corporate legal services to entrepreneurs looking to start or grow their businesses.

Established in 2000 as one of the Governor Gray Davis California Institutes for Science and Innovation, the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) is a hub of interdisciplinary research, translation, and education where scientists from diverse fields find common purpose in addressing grand challenges of the 21st century. With locations at the University of California’s Los Angeles and Santa Barbara campuses, the CNSI leverages public and private investment to drive collaborative nanoscience research across disciplines, translates discoveries into knowledge-driven commercial enterprises, and educates the next generation of scientists and engineers.
Building upon the university’s Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience Initiative, the Bridge Institute unites eminent professors across the entire university, including the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and the Keck School of Medicine of USC, as well as animators and cinematographers in the USC School of Cinematic Arts and the USC Institute for Creative Technologies, and technology transfer experts in the USC Stevens Center for Innovation. We are artists, engineers, scientists and physicians bridging the molecules of life to improve the human condition. Imagine a world where scientific data is released from the confines of its originating discipline, allowing us to better understand, integrate and advance knowledge. Our values are Teamwork, Imagination, Innovation, Learning, Teaching, and Convergence.
