Hot off the press! (and, better late than never…) The July 2009 OnBioVC | Trend Analysis study is now available for FREE via download [HERE]. Over $668M flowed into early-stage biopharma, diagnostic and device companies in the seventh month of 2009 and over $3,821M year-to-date! Find out who is investing in what and where.
Word on the street is that money is sitting on the sideline, not willing to be put to work in early-stage life science companies. A quick sort of the July data at OnBioVC.com shows that perhaps such a thesis is not on point; why in 31 days observed were 8 Series A financings raising $59.7M, or 1 in 5 deals were done as an entities first institutional round, throw in the B’s and we are talking 54% of July deals accounting for $326.4M.
A little trick for leveraging the data found at OnBioVC; say you are a pre-clinical oncology company looking to identify potential investors…simply go to the drop-down box on OnBioVC.com, select “X-Oncology”, observe the list of “Series A” financings then wa-la, you will find in each post all of the participating investors and hyperlinks to their sites.
