Growth capital for the life sciences

Which funding options are available to start-ups as well as to small- and medium-sized enterprises? The search for investors is often not easy for young life sciences companies. A deep insight into the current challenges and solutions will be provided by the analytica Finance Day, organized by Going Public Media, which will be taken place again at analytica Biotech Forum.

Financing opportunities for the life sciences

The Finance Day has been devoting itself to the start-up, growth and capital market financing of life science companies for 14 years.

At the Finance Day, company representatives will be reporting on the options they have used on their growth path. They will be providing practical insights into the issues concerned, thus giving visitors ideas for their own corporate financing.
