About the Investor Forum


Recognized as the Southeast region’s premier life sciences venture capital conference, the SEBIO Investor Forum connects emerging life science companies with potential investors in a forum that provides meaningful networking opportunities. SEBIO’s past presenting companies have raised more than $2.5 billion collectively in private and public funding since the inaugural conference in 1999.


The theme for SEBIO 2011, Data Driven Deals, will highlight the well known fact that data drives grants, corporate partnerships, investments and exits. Home to one of the largest concentrations of CROs in the world and a leader in the biotechnology industry, North Carolina is well positioned to host the Southeast region’s preeminent investment conference.


Participants will include life sciences executives, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, investment bankers, angel investors, university representatives and other industry professionals. The Investor Forum features an online partnering system to help conference attendees arrange meetings with one another, and offers investors the opportunity to hear from senior executives of major biopharmaceutical and medical device companies who are invited to present their strategic partnering goals.


Register today for this year’s SEBIO Investor Forum to hear industry leaders, including keynote speakers Fred Eshelman and Jim Mullen, and to participate in exciting panel discussions.
