UK life sciences goes from strength to strength, but financing available for the sector still lags behind that available across the Atlantic. At JP Morgan, the Prime Minister committed to change this by deploying the financial firepower of the City of London behind UK life sciences. At this event, we will discuss how this can be achieved with his Science Minister George Freeman MP and financial and industry experts. We will ask if and how the UK can build a holistic financing ecosystem, as seen in Boston Massachusetts, by developing and attracting talent, replicating innovative investment vehicles and stimulating greater participation from institutional investors, such as pension funds. The BIA will also launch its latest analysis of UK biotech and life sciences sector investment activity in 2021. Copies will be available at the event.
Join us for the panel discussion followed by networking with refreshments. There will be space at the venue before the event to meet informally with others and grab a coffee. Changing areas will also be made available for those going on to the Gala Dinner nearby.
This event is open to BIA members, gala dinner attendees and investors.
