How to Strengthen the Vital Link to Your Investors in Uncertain Times

April 23 | 16:00 – 16:45 CET

2023 was a year of uncertainty in the biotech industry. The negative financial environment combined with strong competition for funding resulted in high stress levels not only for those seeking funds, but also for those looking to inject cash in the right companies. This resulted in a disconnect between investors and innovators, placing the entire value creation system at risk.

This panel will focus on practical solutions to restore the vital link between investors and innovators, recognizing their mutual dependence for value creation. Biotech companies prioritize refining their equity story and vision to enhance investor engagement. Investors seek expert guidance to navigate the complexity of opportunities, improving efficiency in investment decisions. The panelists will discuss how we can work together towards a stronger, more sustainable connection between biotech entrepreneurs and investors that helps navigate uncertainties.
