IVS Inaugural Symposium

September 26, 2015

The Institute for Venture Science's Inaugural Symposium was a resounding success.  Held in Seattle, this symposium marked the emergence of a new method for funding and promoting "black swan" science.


The Institute for Venture Science (IVS) will fund high-risk, non-traditional scientific inquiries that may produce fundamental breakthroughs. We will identify the most promising challenges to prevailing paradigms, then simultaneously fund multiple research groups worldwide for each selected
challenge. More than ever, the world needs revolutionary breakthroughs to break the logjam of existential crises that threaten our survival. By fostering breakthroughs, the IVS seeks to enrich the world with fresh vision, and help create viable solutions for today’s seemingly intractable problems.


We were graced with the presence of four dynamic speakers, who encouraged us with their stories of courage in the face of scientific convention. 



Nobel Laureate Dr. Barry Marshall speaks about his discovery of the type of bacterium known as Helicobacter pylori, the cause of most peptic ulcers.



Dr. Stephanie Seneff explains the scientific method she developed at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.



Nobel Laureate Dr. Luc Montagnier known for isolating HIV1 and HIV2 viruses, talks about his exploration into the topic of information exchange in water.




Dr. William Bengston speaks about the laying-on-hands cure for cancer he developed, and the subsequent laboratory studies that ensued.
