CaseCTRL Awarded “Most Promising Company” at the Texas Life Science Forum

HOUSTON – CaseCTRL was recognized as one of the 10 Most Promising Companies at the 2020 Texas Life Science Forum co-hosted by the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship and BioHouston on Nov. 10-12, 2020. The companies were chosen by industry experts and investors.

The forum is one of the premier life science venture capital conferences in the U.S. It featured pitches by 40 companies developing innovative solutions in medical devices, digital health, diagnostics, pharmaceuticals and therapeutics. The presenting companies—about half of which are Houston-based—have already raised more than $275 million in funding. Throughout the 3-day virtual event, life science investors, leaders and innovative companies gathered to discuss Covid-19, med tech and the future of the life science industry. The event kicked off with a keynote from Dennis Purcell, the founder of Aisling Capital, and one of the leading life science venture capitalists and closed with the awards presentation including the Michael E. DeBakey Memorial Life Science Award, an award established by BioHouston to honor Dr. DeBakey, one of the brightest luminaries in Houston’s history. From Houston, Texas, Starling Medical won the award.
