The Southeast BIO Investor & Partnering Forum is the Southeast region's premier life sciences and medical technology conference, connecting emerging companies with potential investors and partners in a forum that provides meaningful networking opportunities. Celebrating its 15th anniversary, this event has built a loyal following of thought leaders and investors from across the country. We expect another sensational event in 2013 and trust our inaugural conference in Virginia will bring you new opportunities to build business partnerships and explore the state’s burgeoning life sciences industry.
We anticipate about 350 biotech and medtech investors, corporate executives, university representatives, entrepreneurs, and service providers will attend. To date, over 350 biotechnology, medical device, pharmaceutical, diagnostic and healthcare IT companies from across the Southeast have presented at SEBIO’s annual Investor and Partnering Forum. These companies, in aggregate, have raised more than $2.5 billion in public and private funding since their presentations. These numbers speak for themselves as to the quality of our presenting companies. In addition, our BIO/Plan Competition has successfully mentored 56 emerging technology opportunities.
If that doesn’t convince you that you absolutely must attend the SEBIO Investor & Partnering Forum at the historic Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia, here are some more things to entice you:
