Biotech companies pitch their potential to investors – BioWest 2005., a two-day event that opens Tuesday, showcases firms in the Rocky Mountain region.

In the conference room of a Denver law office, a small Lakewood company named CeraPedics LLC is looking for $5 million. A young executive in a pinstriped suit starts his 10-minute pitch on his company’s development of an injectable putty used to grow bone.

Lawyers from Faegre & Benson pepper Eric Frank, business development manager for CeraPedics, with questions.

"How do you know you will not run into safety issues?" asks attorney Richard Nakashima.

It’s all practice for BioWest 2005 , a two-day conference of biotechnology and medical device companies from the Rocky Mountain region. The event, which starts Tuesday at the Colorado Convention Center, is expected to draw 700 people.
