The Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization (OBIO®) is honoured to announce the conclusion of the successful Canadian Health Investment Showcase which took place in New York, NY, on November 5 and 6, 2018.
At the Showcase, 21 representatives from Canada’s highest potential health science companies and more than 35 premier US investors engaged in hundreds of meetings and created exciting investment and collaboration opportunities.
Over two days at the Consulate General of Canada in New York, OBIO’s Canadian Health Investment Showcase profiled elite US investment firms Aisling Capital and Canaan Partners as well as expertise from Norton Rose Fulbright and Biotagenics in a robust discussion on the feasibility of cross-border investing. Silicon Valley Bank provided a keynote address on trends in health investing this year and Cresco Advisors and Edison Partners shared investor insights in the digital health space.
As Canadian health science companies scale and grow here, attracting global capital and building networks of investors is of paramount importance.
