Murrieta Genomics, the launch pad for genomic sequencing startups, will be presenting its business opportunity to investors and venture capital companies at “An Evening of Innovation” on June 11, 2019 from 5 to 9 pm at Bear Creek Golf Club in Murrieta. The company will join nine other biotech and healthcare technology startups from the Murrieta Innovation Center.
“Murrieta is quietly becoming a new tech hub for healthcare,” stated John Powers, President and COO. “The Innovation Center here has medical device, therapeutic, software, clinical research and of course genomic companies that are working hard to advance new ideas and innovations that can impact the world in a positive way.”
The evening will begin at 5 pm when attendees can check in and enjoy drinks and appetizers during the early networking period. At 6 pm, dinner will be served, and the presentations will begin. Each of the companies will have five minutes to provide an overview and will answer a few questions. After the presentations, there will be an additional hour or so for coffee and dessert with an opportunity to meet the founders of the company in a relaxed setting.

Murrieta Genomics, a specialized business incubator focused on genomic-related businesses;

Tx Genetic, who is using genomic data to help people understand how fruits and vegetables can contribute to the decline of epithelial mucosa, or “inside skin,” causing chronic health conditions like “leaky gut”;
And finally, Alliance Research Centers, a clinical trials site that is actively working to improve clinical trials to reduce costs and increase efficiency in the clinical trials process.
In addition to the current residents of the Innovation Center, a short presentation will be provided by Care Directives, a successful company that was previously housed at the Center.
