Realising liquidity in MedTech & Life Sciences, Angels in MedCity Investor Workshop
29 June 2017, 17:45 - 20:00
CEO of Oxbridge Investment CapitalAngels in MedCity investor workshops aim to give potential angel investors who have a particular interest in medical and life sciences based opportunities the information to be able to make these investments. The AiMC initiative is a partnership between Angels4LifeSciences, London Business Angels and MedCity.
The workshop will be held in the City of London at Newable, one of the Capitals leading debt providers, and aims to deliver an understanding of angel investing from initial due-diligence to realising liquidity. The workshop will cover the developments and opportunities in the life sciences/medical angel market, how to take advantage of the SEIS/EIS schemes, the importance of patent protections, key considerations for investing in an early stage business and potential exit opportunities within Medtech/Lifesciences. The workshop is aimed at individuals who would like to move forward to become an angel investor in life science and medical opportunities.
A pitching event subsequent to this workshop will be held in autumn (date tbc) to offer an opportunity to meet and invest in six carefully selected healthcare and life sciences start-ups and early stage businesses.
