From Dr Eliot Forster, Executive Chair of MedCity
Lots of positive news to report this month, particularly around our focus on raising the investor community’s awareness of what an exciting prospect the life sciences sector is. Our first Future of Healthcare Investor Forum with the London Stock Exchange was packed to capacity, and was kicked off by Minister for Life Sciences George Freeman performing the Market Open Ceremony. We also held our second Angels in MedCity investor workshop and are gearing up for the first pitching event for entrepreneurs.
February sees MedCity join Mayor of London Boris Johnson’s delegation to the East Coast of the United States, where one of his focuses will be on flying the flag for our region’s life sciences excellence. We’ll report back on our activities in the next newsletter, and please also watch out for some good news about new investment to be announced during the visit.
