One of our realLIST 2017 companies, COSY, is joining Safeguard Scientifics and Osage Venture Partners for a discussion on the question of the ages: How can innovators get the cash they need to make their big ideas happen?

The Pennovation Center is playing host to the free event, which is happening Feb. 16 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Here’s the lineup of speakers:

  • Scott Snyder, Safeguard Scientifics Chief Technology and Innovation Officer
  • Jonas Cleveland, COSY Founder and CEO
  • Nate Lentz, Osage Venture Partners Managing Director 

(Mind you, as effective as venture capital can be, the lessons reaped from founders and entrepreneurs on our Tomorrow Toolkit say it’s neither a fix-all solution nor a business model).
