February 10, 2006 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm America/Los Angeles (UTC-08:00)

Stephane Follonier, President and CEO/CTO of Canderis Biosciences, will be joined by his colleagues and co-founders Sven Loetscher (Director of Operations) and Linsey Fan (Chief Business Officer) to bring the audience up to date on Club Entrepreneur’s First Project: Where are they Today?

Canderis Biosciences Inc. emerged from the Club Entrepreneur Program of the Swiss American Chamber of Commerce in early 2005. Its primary focus is to address the pre-clinical and clinical diagnostics markets by providing innovative products relying on its simple, cost effective, yet highly sensitive core technology. The presentation will cover the milestones achieved since the end of the program, some of the hurdles faced in the process and it will also provide an outlook into the future of the company.

The Club Entrepreneur (CE) is a program designed to help aspiring entrepreneurs and/or job seekers in the process of establishing a new business venture. As such the CE assists in the writing of a business plan and the presentation of this business plan before CEÕs own Review Board.
