Fall Series

Topic: Beyond Borders : A Biotech Industry Briefing

When: October 12, 12- 1:30 pm PDT

Where: In Person – Ernst & Young, Seattle Office

Madison Center Building, 920 5th Avenue, 11th floor – Wavespace, Seattle WA 98104


Join life science industry leaders and investors from across the Pacific Northwest to hear insights and analysis from EY’s Beyond Borders Biotechnology Report. The presentation and discussion will be led by Rich Ramko, report author, as well as EY partners Erica Fewell and Oren Lang-Furr. Lunch is provided and the event and networking afterward will take place at EY’s beautiful facility in downtown Seattle.

After a five-year hiatus, EY relaunched the longstanding Beyond Border: EY biotechnology report. With biotech revenues reaching an unprecedented $216.7B in 2021, we knew now was the time for fresh insights and analysis around the industry’s financial performance, financing, and deal market.

While the biotech industry raised $115.3B in 2021 — the second-highest total ever recorded — growing difficulty in accessing the public markets may well prompt many biotechs to seek an exit through acquisition. Against that backdrop, Beyond Borders provides insights and analysis around the industry’s financial performance, financing, and deal market, as well as the uncharted waters ahead.

Registration is required due to limited seating however, there are no fees to participate in this event thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.
