Strategic Partnering and Investment Support
NCBiotech actively connects North Carolina-based companies and universities with “buy-side” life sciences entities seeking to strengthen their product pipelines and portfolios. This includes multi-national pharma, biotech, medical device and animal health companies, investors and foundations.
We engage with VCs and technology scouts to understand their investment and partnering interests. We provide them with detailed information on NC-based companies and academic researchers that fit those profiles. We then host private meetings between invited North Carolina companies/researchers and the visiting scouting teams.
To date, we have delivered partnering projects for more than 40 multi-national corporations and prominent investors, which have led to over 200 private meetings. Companies represented include: Abbott Labs, AbbVie, AbbVie Ventures, Boehringer Ingelheim, BI Ventures, Celgene, Daiichi Sankyo, Elanco, Eli Lilly, JDRF, Johnson & Johnson, LabCorp, Lilly Ventures, NCI, Novartis, Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, Sanofi, Sinopharm, ThirdRock Ventures and others.
