    Yipeng Zhao, a Managing Partner at Embark Ventures, a Los-Angeles based venture capital firm focused on early-stage companies, gives a talk entitled “Embark Ventures: Raising Seed Capital and Building MVP for Scientific Founders” at the Innovate Pasadena Friday Morning Coffee Meetup.

    A VC talk focused on the science space. I wish there was more detail specific to the company’s particular niche, but it’s a nice overview to the space in general.
