Crowdfunding is now being used to fund a wide range of entrepreneurial ventures. Recently, life science companies such as Axol Bioscience and Biotechspert have used the platform to raise money successfully. Up to now however, life sciences companies utilising crowdfunding have typically been ones with technologies or platforms, but could biotech companies use Crowdfunding to raise money successfully? 

At this BioWednesday you will learn how SyndicateRoom is helping Life Science companies to raise money and will explore whether this model of funding can be used to sustain biotech companies in the future.
