More than 300 senior professionals from leading private equity and venture capital firms from around the country will participate in the conference.

We are thrilled to once again welcome to campus some of the brightest minds in the alternative investing space and facilitate robust debate.” “Having been fortunate enough to be a graduate of Harvard Business School, I have seen firsthand how this conference continues to reinvent itself and offer unique keynotes and panels that are relevant to both the current and future states of the global alternative investment space,” said Jim Breyer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Breyer Capital. “The VCPE team spends an extraordinary amount of time and effort to put together a thoughtful and quality agenda that provides attendees with key takeaways that they can apply to their respective careers and personal ambitions. In addition to providing my thoughts and insights as an early-stage investor, I am eager to hear the views of other participants, scholars, and students, and look forward to another successful event.”

Investor Tej Kohli Expands ‘Venture Philanthropy’ Into 3d-printed Bionic Arms

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 3 dicembre 2019

Investor Tej Kohli is to fund the purchase of ten bionic arms for children with limb differences in the UK. The Tej Kohli Foundation hopes that its commitment to fund arms for ten children over the next 5 months as part of its ‘Future Bionics’ program will highlight how assistive technology can substantially improve the lives and confidence of young people living with disabilities. The Tej Kohli Foundation hopes to inspire and influence other healthcare institutions to follow this lead and discover the advanced 3D-printed technology.

In England the National Health Service (‘NHS’) currently provides a single-grip myoelectric-controlled (‘myo’) prosthesis at a cost of approximately £8,000. However, the Open Bionics Hero Arm can be controlled with the electrical signals generated by a user’s muscles and has superior multi-grip functionality that enables users to perform many more everyday activities.The Open Bionics Hero Arm costs £10,000 through a private prosthetics clinic in the UK, whereas other advanced multi-grip bionic hands cost £30,000 – £60,000. The Tej Kohli Foundation will spend an initial £100,000 to launch its ‘Future Bionics’ programme, which will enable ten British children to access not just a superior technology, but a better life.The first Hero Arm recipient is 10-year-old Jacob Pickering from Blackburn, who will receive his new Hero Arm just in time for Christmas. Jacob was born without his right arm as a result of amniotic band syndrome. All Jacob has spoken about for the past month is the Hero Arm, and his father David is “completely overwhelmed” that Jacob has been selected for a donation and claims that it will “change Jacob’s life”. The second Hero Arm recipient is 14-year-old Harris Gribble from Exeter, who is a keen Rugby and Cricket player.The lightweight Hero Arm is currently the only multi-grip myo prosthetic arm that is available for paediatric use. The enhanced ability of the user to be able to personalise their 3D-printed Open Bionics Hero Arm is also a huge boost to mental well-being and to perceived social acceptance. This is particularly important for younger people. Investor Tej Kohli first discovered Bristol-based Open Bionics when he invested into ‘Rewired’, a robotics-focused venture studio ‘with a humanitarian bent’ that was a very-early backer of Open Bionics in 2017.
