Biom Therapeutics receives prestigious recognition at BioFlorida annual conference.
SARASOTA, Fl. Nov. 6, 2020/PR Newswire/ — Biom Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative therapeutics for childhood developmental and epilepsy disorders, announced that it was recognized as a finalist in BioPitch, an annual competition for early-stage life science companies at BioFlorida. This exciting competition provides a platform for the Sunshine State’s most innovative companies and the opportunity to pitch to life science investors.
Bobban Subhadra, CEO of Biom Therapeutics, remarked, “We are grateful for everyone’s vote during the BioPitch competition at BioFlorida. Being nominated as one of three finalists from a pool of 50 companies speaks to the compelling investment opportunity and value evident to all individuals who voted for us. We appreciate the recognition of our mission’s importance and our rapid progress in medical research.”
During the competition, innovative entrepreneurs pitched their company’s activities to leading authorities in Florida’s biotech industry in a digital format this past week. The event was chaired by Robert P. Mino, a registered patent attorney, and sponsored by Fisher Scientific. BioPitch investors come from investment firms like HealthQuest Capital, New World Angels, Beacon Capital, and Cleveland Clinic Innovations. Participants’ pitches were evaluated by an expert panel of judges, from well-respected firms such as Florida Funders, HealthQuest Capital, Capitala Group, among others.
Angel investors are an important source of funding for new companies engaged in biotech research. Without these critical injections of capital, early-stage life science companies may exhaust their resources before completing their mission.
Mr. Subhadra also noted, “Biom Therapeutics is committed to improving the lives of Floridians and other people around the globe coping with the daily challenges of hard-to-treat neurological diseases.”
