BIO events attract the most sophisticated investors in the life science community and provide a robust forum for this community to engage in the advancement of promising technologies that improve and save lives. BIO is pleased to provide complimentary registration to qualified investors under BIO’s revised investor policy.
Qualified investors are defined as institutional, private equity, angel and venture investors with funds on-hand, whose primary activity is direct investment in research and development companies (e.g., hedge fund, mutual fund, or venture fund). Equity research analysts from investment banking institutions and buy-side analysts also qualify as investors.
The fund name, portfolio type, and other helpful information is needed for BIO to process your registration appropriately. Receipt of complimentary registration for a prior year's event does not automatically qualify a registrant for complimentary registration in 2017. In cases where no information is attainable via investor relations databases and/or internet searches may be required to provide additional information.
Organizations who apply for investor registration, that have a service providing component to their business model, such as investor relations, contract services, organizations or who host competitive events will be ineligible for complimentary investor registration. Should BIO discover undisclosed information about an organization's business model AFTER an application has been approved, it may be rescinded at BIO’s discretion.
