Emerging Entrepreneurs to Present at 20th Annual Neurotech Leaders Forum on November 16-17
Neurotech Reports, the publisher of Neurotech Business Report, announced that several new and emerging neurotechnology startup firms will present at the 20th Annual Neurotech Leaders Forum on November 16-17, 2020. The hybrid event takes place at the Embassy Suites SFO and on-line via Zoom. Among the promising new neurotech firms added to the agenda are NeuroGeneces, which has developed a noninvasive technology for enhancing sleep and memory, Cognixion, a Santa Barbara startup developing an AI-powered neural interface, and X-Nerve, a spinoff from the University of Texas at Dallas that is developing a less-invasive neuromodulation device to treat OSA.
Bryan Johnson, the founder of neurotechnology company Kernel, will keynote the hybrid event, which will take place at the Embassy Suites San Francisco Airport and also via Zoom videoconference. Johnson first described his launch of Kernel at the 2016 Neurotech Leaders Forum. Since then, the tech entrepreneur has hired numerous leading neurotech investgators and has developed a brain signal helmet and a concept he calls Neuroscience as a Service (NaaS).
Other featured speakers at the event include Victor Krauthamer, an adjunct professor at George Washington University, and Tim Marjenin, vice president of neurology regulatory affairs at MCRA. Both Krauthamer and Marjenin previously held high-level positions at the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health. Two former Neuralink employees, Vanessa Tolosa and Philip Sabes, are also on the agenda.
Executives from several startup and early stage neurotechnology firms will present during the Entrepreneur panels. Cirtec Medical returns as Platinum Sponsor of the event, and MST returns as the Gold Sponsor.
