13th Annual BIO Investor Forum

WASHINGTON -- The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) today announced the initial list of presenting companies for the 13th Annual BIO Investor Forum. The event is an international investor forum that assembles early and established private companies as well as emerging public biotechs, along with top public and private equity investors, to explore investment trends and opportunities in life sciences. The event will take place October 7-8, 2014 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, California.

“Investors are eager to learn about and evaluate fresh new investment opportunities, as evidenced by the 30% increase in investor registration to date compared to last year.”

“Over the past three years, more than 30 of the private companies that presented at a BIO Investor Forum have gone public, generating a current combined market capitalization of nearly $15 billion,” said Jim Greenwood, CEO and President at BIO. “Investors are eager to learn about and evaluate fresh new investment opportunities, as evidenced by the 30% increase in investor registration to date compared to last year.”

Presenting companies have a clear R&D focus with a pipeline involving biotechnology for therapeutics, diagnostics or platform technologies. More than one-quarter of the public presenting companies at the event have gone public since passage of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act in April 2012. To date, overall, 111 biotech companies have gone public since passage of the JOBS Act.
