      The 16th Annual Southeast BIO Investor & Partnering Forum @ W Atlanta Midtown
      Nov 11 – Nov 13 all-day

      The Southeast BIO (SEBIO) Investor & Partnering Forum provides an unparalleled opportunity for companies to meet key decision makers in the regional and national life science and medical technology communities.

      Over 16 years, the SEBIO Investor & Partnering Forum has built a loyal following, attracting thought leaders and investors from across the country. We expect another sensational event in 2014 that will provide new opportunities to build business partnerships and explore the region’s burgeoning life science industry.

      We expect about 350 biotech and medtech investors, corporate executives, university representatives, entrepreneurs and service providers to attend the event. This is a perfect opportunity to showcase your company’s products and services at the most significant annual life science event in the Southeast.

      To date, the more than 200 later stage and 165 early stage companies that participated in previous SEBIO Investor & Partnering Forums have raised more than $2.5 billion in public and private funding since their presentations. These numbers speak to the quality of our presenting companies. In addition, our BIO/Plan Competition has successfully mentored 65 emerging technology opportunities.

      Georgia’s life sciences community is a rich mix of companies applying life sciences technologies to improve medicine and healthcare, agriculture, industrial and energy production, forestry, marine science and environmental management. These companies range from established to start-up and from pharmaceutical to medical device and diagnostic to medical informatics companies. The state’s life sciences industry is anchored by world-class public and private research institutions and universities, including Emory University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Georgia. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the premier public health research institute in the world, is headquartered in Atlanta. Georgia’s state government, through the Georgia Research Alliance and Georgia Cancer Coalition, has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the state’s universities to support scientists in pursuit of basic research discoveries and early commercialization of technologies. These factors combined with a business-friendly environment provide a comprehensive ecosystem for life sciences companies to thrive in Georgia.
