Investing in tomorrow's healthcare
With a particular focus on drug therapies, digital health and medical device technologies, Angels in MedCity brings potential investors together with life sciences experts in a programme aimed at both people who are new to investing and experienced investors who have little or no experience in the life sciences sector.
The aim is to build investor understanding in the life sciences sector and support life sciences companies to gain funding to commercialise their ideas.
The Angels in MedCity initiative is delivered by London Business Angels and MedCity with further expertise from Angels4LifeSciences. Our initiative provides practical support to investors and small businesses that supports investment funding and thereby helps to create jobs in London.
Angels in MedCity has created a community of investors supported through a programme of investor workshops. Using case studies and tips from experienced investors in the field, the workshops explain how to identify and structure a good deal in the life sciences sector, as well as provide expert advice on tax breaks and legal issues.
We hold regular entrepreneur pitching events, which give pre-vetted and investment ready early-stage life sciences companies an opportunity to pitch to the Angels in MedCity investor community.
Since the programme launch in October 2014, we have held seven pitching events, helping 43 healthcare/life sciences companies to raise equity funding from our community of business angels, with £14m being invested so far.
