Corporate Venturing and Early-Stage Financing in the Spotlight at BioTrinity
Date:4/25/2012

OXFORD, England, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The rise of the corporate venture fund and the landscape for early-stage venture capital investing are emerging key themes at BioTrinity, the-premier European biopartnering and investment conference organised by OBN, the not-for-profit business network which provides comprehensive support for bioscience businesses in the Oxford and South-East England biocluster and beyond.

The first day of the conference saw senior figures from Merck Research Ventures Fund, Abbott Biotech Ventures, SR One, Shire Strategic Investment and Atlas Venture discuss the goals and priorities for corporate venture funds in a panel The Redefined Aims of the New Corporate Venture Universe.

Corporate Venture Panel chair, Bruce Booth, Partner, Atlas Venture, said: "Today's panel reflected the increasing role corporate venturing is playing as part of the overall investment landscape for innovative life science companies. While the models of individual funds might differ, it is clear that working with corporate venture creates opportunities for investors and companies that might otherwise not exist and provides a critical additional source of capital and expertise."

A second panel on day two of the conference brings together further leading players in the corporate venture world to discuss whether early-stage corporate VC investing represents a paradox or a paradigm shift. Panel participants include SR One, MedImmune Ventures, Merck-Serono Ventures and Boehringer-Ingelheim Venture Fund.

The opportunities and challenges in early-stage investing theme were also drawn out in a first day panel Beyond the Seed and A Rounds. Leading venture capital investors including Crédit Agricole Private Equity, Abingworth, NeoMed, Edmond de Rothschild Investment Partners and Astellas Venture Management joined the panel.
