"We are honored to support Horizon in their private funding efforts through our online platform and at our debut transactional conference in Santa Barbara," said Mona DeFrawi, Chief Executive Officer of InsideVenture. "InsideVenture was created as a powerful and cost-effective platform to support the companies that grow our economy by facilitating their late stage and pre-IPO financing needs. Structural changes in the capital markets over the past 10 years have blocked the real path to economic growth by challenging the financing of the companies delivering valuable new products, jobs and profits for the world economy. These top 50 companies have invested in innovation, and now InsideVenture is innovating the investment process to support their continued growth"
"Horizon Therapeutics is pleased to use InsideVenture's new financing platform because it provides an efficient means to access and build relationships with a number of high quality private investors" said Tim Walbert, president and CEO of Horizon. "We look forward to introducing investors to our company, to the successful Phase 3 data just announced about HZT-501, and developing important relationships that may help bring this drug to market."
