Is one of your portfolio companies raising and requiring additional, maybe later-stage, investors?

Eligibility is simple. Our only requirements for joining the BioCapital Network are that you actively invest in the UK life science ecosystem and you meet each of the following criteria.
Please note, you will only be accepted to the BioCapital Network if you have access to active funds for investment in life science companies. After review by our team, accepted members will be invited to join our community platform.
More info in the FAQs below.
Members can be based anywhere in the world but they must be actively backing UK-based life science companies. In fact, we’re proud to be building an international community of investors who all recognise the strength and potential of UK life sciences.
As of Q1 2024, 30% of BioCapital Network members represent funds headquartered outside of the UK with 18% in Europe, 9% in North America and 3% in Asia - spanning a total of 20 countries.
Through joining the community, investors based outside of the UK can enhance their deal flow by gaining unparalleled access to high-quality investment opportunities in UK-based companies that are shared by other trusted BioCapital Network members.
Once a month, BioCapital Network members are invited to join intimate meet-ups centred around specific themes within life sciences.
We often invite selected members of our BioFounder Club to these meet-ups, aiming for a 1:1 investor-to-founder ratio with around 10 - 20 attendees, enabling a more personal way for founders and investors to connect.
These sessions facilitate the exchange of highly relevant sector-specific deal flow alongside discussions around sector trends and challenges.
Once a quarter, we host an informal drinks meet-up exclusively for members of the BioCapital Network. No professional services. No pitching companies. No students. Just investors.
These sessions have no formal agenda and provide a relaxed and open forum for investors from across all areas of life sciences to develop meaningful relationships, share high-quality deal flow, open co-investment opportunities and enable discussions on the latest industry trends and challenges.
Twice a year, we host a Demo Day for members of the BioCapital Network to hear from some of the incredible entrepreneurs who are part of our BioFounder Club.
Demo Days are organised in sector-specific sessions so you can pick and choose when you attend based on your investment areas and interests within life sciences.
We aim to have at least 50% of companies pitching to be women-led and at least 50% to be based outside of the Golden Triangle.
Eligibility is simple - our only requirement is that you are an active life science investor. How we define this is outlined below.
You must either be an individual Angel or a representative of an Angel Syndicate, Family Office, Venture Capital, Corporate Venture Capital or Private Equity.
You must be actively investing in at least one of AgriTech/ClimateTech, Digital Health, Life Science Tools and Tech, Medical Devices, TechBio or Therapeutics.

You don't need to be based in the UK to join the BioCapital Network. In fact, many members are based outside of the UK but have joined the community for better access to UK-based deal flow. All we ask is that you are actively investing in the UK life science ecosystem, no matter where you are based yourself.
