What is BioFest Invest?

BioFest Invest (virtual event in 2021) brings together potential investors from across the nation and Texas bioscience companies seeking investment funding, while sharing best practices, connections, and valuable advice. After a rigorous screening process, investors will have an opportunity to review selected company applications prior to the event to determine which companies they are interested in visiting. During the event, investors will be able to view company pitches and connect with company representatives live or after the event. Attendees will also have access to speakers and panelists on valuable topics relevant to bioscience companies. One-on-one networking meetings are available throughout the event via video chat rooms.

The 2021 virtual BioFest Invest is free for attendees and investors. Participating companies seeking funding pay a fee of $150 for BioMedSA, BioHouston, BioAustin, BioNTX, and Bio El Paso-Juarez members or $250 for non-members, due upon acceptance.

For more information on BioMedSA membership ($250 for bioscience companies with less than 20 employees), click here.
