Start-up Meet-up

To continue to foster the UK ecosystem of early stage life science companies, the BIA is proud to launch Start-Up Meet-Up. This interactive event will bring together the leadership of early-stage companies for an afternoon of networking, development advice, and peer-to-peer problem-solving.

The event will focus on roundtable discussions on a range of topics crucial to start-ups, including finding talent, building infrastructure and attracting investment. Each table will be hosted by an expert in the field, and you’ll have the chance to share your challenges and successes, and take guidance from both the expert and those of your peers who have overcome similar challenges.

To foster a lively discussion, and to ensure availability for those most relevant, we will be limiting attendance to the leadership of early-stage companies in the drug discovery, platform development and techbio spaces.
