Resources for Small Companies Going to the BIO International Convention

Going to the BIO International Convention, happening in San Diego, June 19-22, 2017, is a great opportunity to experience powerful business partnering, benefit from invaluable education sessions and network with 16,000+ of biotech’s best and brightest.

BIO provides several opportunities for small companies and start-ups to attend at discounted rates (or even for free!), gain additional visibility from influential biopharma investors, and secure dedicated partnering spaces. We encourage you to learn about and participate in the various programs that are available:

Start-up Stadium

The Start-Up Stadium was designed to provide start-up companies with the opportunity to engage key members of the investment community, venture philanthropy groups, and BIO attendees. This area in the BIO Exhibition provides an exciting and interactive experience where investors provide live feedback and judge 5-7 minute pitches presented by start-up biotech companies. To participate as a start-up, companies must meet certain criteria to apply. If accepted, in addition to their opportunity to make their pitch before a panel of presenters, Start-up Stadium companies also receive a partnering registration for $699.

We are accepting applications now through April 7. View more information on Start-up Stadium.

Company Presentations

For companies participating in BIO One-on-One Partnering, purchasing a Company Presentation slot is a great way to increase your visibility. In fact, company presenters tend to receive double the number of partnering meeting requests than non-presenters, and schedule twice as many meetings than non-presenting companies.  Presenting companies are also spotlighted in BIO’s marketing materials leading up to the event, as well as onsite.

Partnering registration is required to apply for a slot. If selected, Presenting Companies must purchase (in addition to their registration) the presentation fee which is $1,280 for BIO members and $1,600 for non-members. Learn more here.
