BIO Spark Showcase
Participation in the BIO SPARK Showcase is free.   

The BIO SPARK Showcase aims to provide an excellent opportunity for academic researchers in the SPARK network to showcase drug development programs that are ready for partnering or venture funding.

The BIO Investor Forum is historically well attended by the venture arms and business development units of major pharmaceutical companies, smaller specialty pharma/biotech companies looking to add to their pipelines, start-ups, and many early stage venture capital firms, making it the ideal setting for early stage assets from the university setting. Academics interested in partnering will present their programs and also have one-on-one discussions with interested parties.
