The Sixth Annual BioHealth Capital Region Forum brought together industry leaders from across the region who discussed the accomplishments and strengths of the region as its member companies continue to innovate new therapies and medicines in one of the strongest bio-hub regions in the United States.
This invitation-only event is free for executive level biotech leaders and is presented by the Association of University Research Parks, AstraZeneca, BioHealth Innovation, Children’s National Health System, Emergent BioSolutions, George Mason University, J.P. Morgan, Johns Hopkins University, Maryland Department of Commerce, Virginia Bio, and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, P.C.
Perhaps the single biggest challenge faced by startup entrepreneurs and early-stage life science companies is securing the necessary funding to fuel innovation and growth. The BioHealth Capital Region (BHCR) life science community as a whole faces a similar challenge when it comes to access to venture capital funding; this challenge has been noted by many BHCR thought leaders and well-documented in a host of BioBuzz stories.
