In the current state of the global economy, in which fundraising has become tight and there are decreasing opportunities to exit, venture capital (VC) firms are extremely cautious in choosing their investments. This briefing will investigate the historical trends of VC investments and key areas of investment in the European and North American healthcare industry.
Why you should attend:
This briefing will benefit VC, financial, private equity, and strategic investors, as well as startup companies. This presentation will inform participants about key trends so investors are better positioned to make informed judgments before investing in specific segments or companies.
"The pharmaceutical and biotechnology segments have become more mature, with a shift from VC investments to more strategic investments," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Dr. E. Saneesh. "This is shown by the decrease in the number of VC deals in these segments; however, the healthcare equipment segment has displayed increases in the number of investments. The consolidating VC industry has also contributed to the reduction in the number of VC deals globally."
