Why Attend?

BioForward is OBN’s ‘Roadmap for Growth’ Life Sciences event, designed to provide the support, skills, know-how and industry connections required to build a commercially successful business.

Now in its fourth year, the event is attended by leaders and decision makers of growing R&D companies across all therapy and technological areas, and companies who provide critical support services to the life sciences ecosystem.

86% of all Life Science start-up’s fail resulting in a huge waste of time, effort, capital, and numerous missed opportunities. It’s often assumed that failure is mainly down to technical challenges but in reality statistics show that the predominant reason a start-up underperforms or a new product launch fails is due to a lack of planning or experience. This is where BioForward comes in – OBN’s unique conference focusing on creating and developing a practical roadmap for growth.

Who should attend?

BioForward has been specifically designed for growing life sciences R&D companies, and high-quality Service Providers who can provide the critical support and advice required to help them build a commercially sustainable business.
