Growth capital for biotechnology
and life sciences - Finance Day 2024

A few days ago, Jutta and Florian from our team attended Finance Day 2024 at the analytica trade fair in Munich. The event once again offered exciting expert panels on current financing and capital market issues for life sciences companies. As the panels focused on three of our key consulting areas, namely life sciences, venture capital and IPOs, attending was of course a must for us as a specialist insurance broker. Our team was also delighted to meet many of our partners and clients again and talk to them about the importance of risk management and insurance solutions.

The startup panel was also interesting and once again demonstrated the innovative spirit of the industry. Ten companies were selected for this, nine of which were even presented in person by a founder. Take a look at the companies and if you are interested in the product or an investment, please contact the ladies or gentlemen directly. We are keeping our fingers crossed! 

  1. Better Basics Laborbedarf GmbH(Mario Schneider)
  2. Intu Diagnostics GmbH(Dr. Dirk Kuhlmeier )
  3. Pacifico Biolabs GmbH(Washington Logroño)
  4. Dr. Purus Enorm Smart Technik GmbH(Dr. Bo Liu)
  5. goodBot GmbH(Dr. Julius Wiener)
  6. hema.to GmbH(Dr. Karsten Miermanns)
  7. IRUBIS GmbH(Anja Müller)
  8. Opto Biolabs GmbH(Dr. Kathrin Brenker)
  9. Safia Technologies GmbH(Dr. Timm Schwaar)
  10. CamSens GmbH(Enrika Barreto

In addition, the challenges of the financing environment were again discussed from various perspectives. The desire for a European capital market that would combine the strengths of Frankfurt, Euronext and NASDAQ Europe was articulated fairly unanimously. From our point of view as a specialist insurance broker, this is also desirable, although the standardization of the liability framework would certainly become even more challenging, so that different solutions for each stock exchange would no longer be necessary, as is currently the case.  

In conclusion, we are delighted to have been part of these events and will be back at the next one in Leipzig. Thanks also to the team of Plattform Life Sciences and Going Public Media AG for the great organization and the successful framework of the event! We had a lot of fun.
