An overview of the field

Life sciences are a branch of science concerned with the study of living organisms and life processes. An ever developing field and given the demand for innovation in medicine, life science companies are often seeking funding for further research. Thanks to innovations in the investment sphere, there are now many ways for them to go about this task.

According to figures quoted in The Telegraph, early-stage investment into UK life science companies more than tripled between 2015 and 2016. The report goes on to state that despite the instability stemming from the Brexit vote in mid-2016, investment was again expected to increase in 2017.

Funding opportunities

Life science companies were quick to adopt to equity crowdfunding as a means to raise funds. In 2015, SyndicateRoom was named Europe’s leading online platform for life science investment in a report by Biocom, having funded 16 of the 42 life science projects up to that date. Since then, we have continued to support a number of life science companies, in fact, as of June 2017, 31 percent of all fully funded companies on SyndicateRoom specialised in life sciences.
