The BioStock Spring Summit is Virtual

For the first time ever, and of course with all the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe from covid-19, we proudly welcome you to the PREMIER of the annual BioStock Life Science Spring Summit, where innovation and capital connect. Hosted at BioStock's studio at the innovation super-cluster Medicon Village in Lund, the Summit is the Nordic region's premier showcase platform for the region's top early- and growth stage companies covering a number of therapeutic areas. 

 

Here, companies get the opportunity to pitch virtually to industry experts, business developers, financing professionals and investors on every level, all in the convenient and safe setting of a virtual platform.

The BioStock Life Science Spring Summit takes place during two days and features showcases from leading private and listed life science companies. The program also includes panel discussions providing crucial insights on life science investments and capital raising with focus on the Nordic markets.

 

To sum it all up, The Spring Summit is a conveniently accessible, must-attend online event for all serious investors or startup, early stage- or maturing company executives looking for that competitive edge.

2020 Agenda

Last year in November we succeeded in reaching the main goal of the BioStock Life Science Summit: to bring together life science innovation with investors interested in the Nordic life science scene and potential scientific or commercial partners. During two jam-packed event days, a large number of small to medium-sized Nordic pharma, biotech, medical device and diagnostics companies pitched to an attentive online audience of investors and potential partners. The program also included three panel discussions involving top level stakeholders in the life science ecosystem.
