The World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology will host sessions for company CEOs or COOs to make formal 25-minute presentations on their technology development and business models to an elite audience of investors and analysts. These sessions will be separate from the breakout tracks and are meant to spur investment in companies seeking to raise money.
CEOs and COOs from emerging industrial biotechnology companies seeking investment and partnering opportunities will present their new technologies, accomplishments, milestones, value proposition, and business case. The presenting companies will cover advanced biofuels, renewable chemical platforms, and biomass conversion technologies to cheap and sustainable sugar sourcing.
Investor Panel Discussion
An investor discussion panel will kick off the investor sessions. The investor discussion panel is comprised of leading investors who will discuss investment opportunities and funding sources to help you identify the right funding for your clean tech business.
