Services for Inward Investors 

Investment is key in every sector, especially in life sciences, and Bionow recognises this by hosting a range of events to support business growth and connecting companies with investors.

The annual Bionow BioCap Conference provides a unique meeting place connecting life sciences businesses, researchers and investors. Organisations can navigate the life sciences funding landscape and identify the life science investment opportunities that will advance and support the success of their business. Applications are invited from companies seeking or shortly starting to seek funding, and successful applicants are given the opportunity to present their company overview, request and need for funding to a panel of investors in an 8 minute “pitch”.

Other bespoke investment focused events are hosted by Bionow throughout the year, and several venture capital companies are Bionow members.

Bionow supports and promotes the life science sector across Northern England, highlighting the capabilities and companies of each region including the Northeast. Furthermore, there are a number of professional service member organisations who specialise in the life sciences sector, ensuring that all stages and ambitions of growth as a business can be sourced and supported on a local and regional level.
