Panel title

How can Swiss biotechs remain competitive in a challenging environment for early stage financing and partnering?

Panel summary

After record years of capital investements into biotech companies during the Covid pandemic, the global investment climate for biotech companies has reversed in 2022. The Swiss Venture Capital Report Report 2023 revealed a sharp downturn in biotech investments (back to the average level of 2017-2019), while other sectors improved and reached record highs. This panel will discuss the implications, the wider industry context and how the vibrant Swiss innovation ecosystem can best compete on a global stage, with perspectives from VC, pharma, biotech, Venturelab and the panel host, Swiss HLG.
