Complimentary passes are provided for qualified institutional (buy/sell-side), private equity and venture investors. The number of passes is limited, and priority is given to regular participants, however the organiser has the discretion to reject registrations. Other participants may consider purchasing access, which includes in-person or virtual participation, with different options to showcase your company.
The Online Meeting System will open on the 13th of February for uploading profiles and sending meeting invites. The in-person meetings will be taking place on the 27th of February, while virtual meetings will take place on the 6th - 8th of March. For the virtual meetings, the system will allow you to have a secure audio/video call, as well as the option to present slides using a screen share function and we will have a dedicated room for in-person meetings.
Presentations are a popular and useful way to gain additional exposure with potential investors and pharma partners, which make up over half the audience. We are pleased to announce that once again we will have 20-minute and 10-minute presentations taking place in-person at the dedicated presenting tracks. Here you will be able to showcase your company in front of investors attending the physical event. The recording will be added to your company’s profile later, which will be available on demand for registered participants until the event portal closes. Start-up companies, which are looking for seed financing can apply for a Rising Stars – Seed Companies Session.
For those who are not able to present in-person, but are still interested to showcase their company, there is an option to purchase either a 20-minute or 10-minute presentation, which will be pre-recorded in advance and available to all registered attendees on the event’s portal. Start-up companies may also purchase a 5-minute pre-recorded showcase instead.
The Sachs Team can assist with the pre-recording of the presentation, or you can upload a video you already have. Interested viewers will be able to message or request a meeting with you using the Online Meeting System.
