ICV hosts events which bring together the CEOs of private and public growth companies and family offices and fund investors in a collaborative and safe environment. In one year, our events grew sixfold in attendance, without advertising; we grew because of the quality of the people. 

Our experience as investors attending conferences and group formats in the financial industry has shown us that most company outreach events have the same feel. Overcrowded with those that inhibit the networking process and rapid fire presentations by CEOs who then race off with little to no substantive interaction after the fact, these experiences seem to leave investor attendees with unanswered questions about the top person in command, the investment opportunity, or why it can’t be done better. We believe it can. 

ICV’s response to these engagement gaps at most investor events have been to create a novel medium for both companies AND investors. Whilst presentations remain at the core of the agenda, the pace is much more relaxed and designed to allow investor attendees to get to know management and fellow investors without the distraction of service provider booths and sponsorship talks. The focus shifts exclusively to listening to company presentations while building rapport and relationships through group Q&A and due diligence sessions following each CEO presentation. Companies are carefully curated for quality, with most sourced by investor attendees or based on their investment criteria, to ensure that the attendees are seeing the kind and quality of company they seek. 

No more ten minute speed dating with ICV, we give investors two days in an intimate environment to ask all their questions and to see company management in many different settings. When it comes to investing, ICV believes that with a more complete picture of a company and especially its leaders, investors can feel more confident that their returns will be more secure.

Formally known as The State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn—but better known to our patients and Brooklyn neighbors as SUNY Downstate Medical Center—we are older than the Brooklyn Bridge. We trace our roots back to 1860, when a school of medicine was founded at the Long Island College Hospital. The new college’s faculty revolutionized medical education in this country by bringing the teaching of medicine to the hospital bedside, thus rejecting the idea that physicians should be trained exclusively in university lecture halls.

Nobel Prize Winner in Medicine
Dr. Robert Furchgott

Today, SUNY Downstate is one of the nation’s leading urban medical centers. SUNY Downstate comprises a College of MedicineCollege of Health Related ProfessionsCollege of NursingSchool of Graduate StudiesSchool of Public Health, and University Hospital of Brooklyn.

The quality of our education, research, and patient care programs was confirmed with the awarding of theNobel Prize in Medicine to Dr. Robert Furchgott, a member of our School of Graduate Studies faculty since 1956. Dr. Furchgott’s identification of nitric oxide as a signalling molecule important in vascular health has revolutionized care for heart, stroke, impotence, and other diseases.

As the only academic medical center in Brooklyn, we serve a large population–over 2.3 million people–and one that is among the most diverse in the world. We are also an engine of opportunity for students interested in pursuing careers in health care. Many of our students are the first in their families to attend college.

More physicians who practice medicine in New York City received their training at our College of Medicine than any other medical center in the country. Nationally, our medical school ranks seventh in the number of graduates who are now engaged in academic medicine. Here in Brooklyn, our impact is even greater. We have trained nearly half of all doctors practicing in a number of specialty areas.

Our College of Health Related Professions and College of Nursing also play a unique role in the borough and the city. We have the oldest midwifery program in the country, and we recently made history again by establishing a joint program between the two colleges that trains midwives who are not nurses. The College of Nursing is particularly proud of its role in educating minority students. Approximately three-fourths of the students are minority-group members, and many are recent immigrants.

University Hospital of Brooklyn is the borough’s only hospital located at an academic medical center. As such, it offers the most advanced and comprehensive care in Brooklyn. Many of its physicians are regularly rated among the best in New York City. Some are known throughout the world.

SUNY Downstate Medical Center enters the new century with a renewed dedication to serving the people of Brooklyn through its three-fold mission of education, research, and patient care.

HYBRIGENICS Hybrigenics is a biopharmaceutical company involved in the discovery and the development of new anticancer drugs. Industry sectors Biotech Therapeutics Area Oncology
Your innovative solution

Hybrigenics is developing inecalcitol, a vitamin D receptor agonist, characterized by enhanced activities against cancer cell proliferation and much reduced toxicity on blood calcium levels as compared to calcitriol, the active form of vitamin D. Therefore, inecalcitol can be given at high daily oral doses which exert cytostatic effects on tumors. 

Which problem are you solving ?

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has the worse prognosis of all types of leukemias (<25% 5-year survival). Furthermore, elderly or frail AML patients cannot support standard induction chemotherapy and are eligible only to treatment with either decitabine or azacytidine, two hypo-methylating agents. The goal is to increase overall survival of these desperate patients by adding daily oral inecalcitol to hypo-methylating therapy.

Target market segments

Pharmaceutical products / anticancer agents / hematological malignancies / small chemical drugs /

Key value proposition

Orphan drug status already granted for AML in US and EU / Excellent tolerance in patients / convenient daily oral dosing favoring compliance / Strong proof of principle in animal AML models
