ABFO SoCal Breakfast Meeting

ABFO SoCal Breakfast Meeting - March 14th

Please join us for a wide-ranging discussion on foreign investments in life sciences, international licensing trends, and the Chinese and Japanese environment for US biotech.

We will discuss the new powers of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), the CFIUS pilot program, the definition of critical technologies and how companies are approaching CFIUS risks. We will also explore how startups and venture funds are electing to take practical steps to limit or allocate CFIUS risk, and when and how those investors and companies are electing to file with CFIUS.
