What People are Saying About the BIO Investor Forum

"For us, the BIO Investor Forum is the bellwether of life science investing and business creation. As such, it's the "must go to" meeting on our calendar each year." - Graeme Martin, CEO, Takeda Ventures

“The BIO Investor Forum over the years has proved to be an excellent venue for investors to interact with a high quality group of emerging biotechnology companies and their senior management teams. The ongoing exposure to the investor community is invaluable to this group of companies as they execute their business strategies, achieve significant clinical catalysts and ultimately look to the capital markets to fund their continued advancement. Given my experience over the years, I have found this well-orchestrated conference to be a “must-attend” annual event.” - John Chambers, ROTH Capital Partners
