Companies sought for AusBiotech’s new pitching series


AusBiotech is inviting expressions of interest from its corporate members for its new virtual pitching series, BiotechPitch. Its new platform will profile Australian companies to investors internationally and will feature expert industry speakers and commentators offering capital insights and market updates.

Overcoming border closures, the series provides access to local and international investors, and will also be available to the broader and interested biotech community.

Each BiotechPitch will highlight innovative companies in an industry sub-sector, such as regenerative medicine (including cell therapies and immunotherapy), digital health, and diagnostics, and will feature up to five investment opportunities.

Expert speakers will share the virtual stage, providing insights on current investment trends, including sourcing capital, preparing for capital raising, understanding the priorities of investors, and the challenges and opportunities in the COVID-19 era.

The series has been developed as a free-of-charge opportunity for AusBiotech’s corporate members and is part of AusBiotech’s broader Investment Programme. AusBiotech helps Australian life science companies connect with international capital markets and empowers them to be competitive on a global scale. The Programme leads companies to global investment hubs; arranges access to opportunities for collaboration and partnerships; and provides investor support and education, both domestically and internationally.

The BiotechPitch series will be scheduled over the coming months, and AusBiotech invites its corporate members to check their eligibility and express their interest now.
