The Investment Readiness Series

Increasing deal flow of projects ready for investment in the BioRegion: this is the main goal of the Investment Readiness Series, a new initiative from Biocat.

Additionally, Biocat wants to add value to research projects through one-to-one mentoring, make it easier for projects scouting for partners by concentrating top-notch research, and establish a long-term relationship with TTOs, leveraging the impact of their work on an ecosystem level.

How does it work?

There are several thematic editions of 'The Investment Readiness Series' per year. In each edition, the best research projects -both from companies and researchers- will meet face to face with investors, business angels, and VCs that are looking for excellent projects in life sciences.

The editions can be local (aimed at Catalan projects and investors) or international (aimed at Catalan projects and international investors).

The process:

The Investment Readiness Series consists of the following steps:

  1. Call on a specific topic open to the whole scientific community in the BioRegion.
  2. Top projects with the highest investment potential are sent to the partners.
  3. Partners choose several projects to be presented in the Investment Readiness Series.
  4. Biocat individually advises projects before they meet with investors.
  5. Project pitch, private face-to-face meetings, networking, and partnering opportunities in the future.
