Biocat has opened a new call for participants in The Investment Readiness Series- France Edition, an initiative that aims to bring together projects and companies from the BioRegion of Catalonia with French investors, and vice versa.

The deadline for the call is March 19 and it is geared towards companies and projects in the healthcare sector that are ready for seed capital and series A investment. The program is free of charge and allows more than one project per institution or principal investigator.

After the call is closed, Biocat will send information on the Catalan projects and companies to a group of French venture capitalists, venture builders and corporate investors, who will make their selection based on their interests. Likewise, investors in the BioRegion of Catalonia will get the chance to discover French projects and companies.

Finally, on May 22, the selected projects will meet with the investors to open up contacts for possible investment at an event at the Cuatrecases headquarters in Barcelona. The program is organized by Biocat in collaboration with Business France and ACCIÓ Paris and support from Cuatrecasas.
