From Sarah Haywood, Chief Operating Officer of MedCity
A stimulating visit to the US East Coast in February as part of the Mayor of London’s delegation has provided much food for thought for us here at MedCity. Despite heavy snow, we were able to make some useful new contacts and raise the profile of UK life sciences within the influential investor and industry communities of Boston and New York. An overriding impression for me was the level of investment available in the Cambridge-Boston area and the proactive involvement of investors themselves, who are not waiting for companies to pitch to them but are seeding companies themselves. You can see more news and feedback from our visit below.
