ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The Southeast BIO (SEBIO) Investor & Partnering Forum provides an unparalleled opportunity to meet key decision makers in the regional and national life science and medical technology communities.

In its 21st year, the SEBIO Investor & Partnering Forum has built a loyal following, attracting thought leaders and investors from across the country. We expect another strong event in 2019, with new opportunities to build business partnerships and explore the region’s life science industry.

More than 300 biotech and medtech investors, corporate executives, university representatives, entrepreneurs, and service providers will attend the event this year. This is a rich opportunity to showcase your company at the most significant annual life science conference in the Southeast.

To date, the more than 220 later stage and 180 early stage companies that participated in previous SEBIO Investor & Partnering Forums have raised more than $3.5 billion in public and private funding. These numbers speak to the quality of our presenting companies.
