Capital Formation ’21-30 | Investing Modes Driving GCT Technology and Timing
Friday, May 21, 2021
The dynamics of venture/PE investing and IPOs are fast evolving. What are the drivers – will the number of investors grow will the size of early rounds continue to grow? How is this reflected in GCT target areas, company design, and biotech overall? Do patients benefit from these trends? Is crossover investing a distinct class or a little of both? Why did it emerge and what are the characteristics of the players? Will SPACs play a role in the growth of the gene and cell therapy industry. What is the role of corporate investment arms (eg. NVS, Bayer, GV, etc.) – has a category killer emerged? Are we nearing the limit of what the GCT market can absorb or will investment capital continue to grow unabated?
