Angels, Venture Capitalists, Strategic Corporate Investors and SBIR grants?
Yes, these are the four ways, plus sales, to raise capital and currently the biggest gap in southeastern North Carolina to grow a life sciences industry to create better jobs in the region. And a little buzz / marketing to make more industry people aware of the attractive assets of the region.
While Wilmington is the eighth largest city in NC, we are 24th in pursuing SBIR grants in North Carolina!!!
We are working to improve the growth of life sciences companies and will give three local life sciences startups the chance to pitch at the start of this event. Are you familiar with Surgilum, Neat Cap or Tick Rover and other Life Sciences startups based in Wilmington in addition to PPD, AAI Pharma and the Marine Biotech focus at UNC Wilmington?
