Voice from participant

” I think that the opportunity for companies to have a tailored visit to China to meet with representatives of companies, government, and investors is very valuable.  It’s a difficult task for small companies to arrange such meetings. The efficiency of this proactive match-making will be incredibly valuable to PharmaJet—and no doubt the other participants in the InnoSTARS program. ” —— Heather Potters, PharmaJet, Inc.


We would like to thank all of our judges, co-organizer, and partners in Denver.

Judge list: Brian Zimbelman, Cyril Yee, DuWayne Peterson, John Robinson, Lance Reisman, Yutong Jiang, Praful Shah, Seth Terry, William Sarni, Bo Lee, Eva Yao, Trent Yang, Rachel Rea, Haiyan Zhang, and Ruosida Lin.
