Financing in times of COVID19 for Basel-based Life Science start-ups


The corona crisis is keeping the global economy on edge. For start-ups, the situation is particularly precarious as their funding runway and milestones are tightly calculated and a global pandemic is usually not part of a SWOT analysis. On top of that, initial public support is oriented at wages and annual revenue, both criteria that largely exclude start-ups from these measures.


Together with Alexander Mayweg from Versant Ventures, Pacel Winnen from Hemex and serial life sciences entrepreneur Roger Meier, the Basel-Stadt Office of Economy and Labour, the Basel-Landschaft economic promotion and aim to address this challenge.


In this webinar we will:

  • dicuss how start-ups in different maturity stages deal with the situation
  • talk about the special importance of investor relations during the crisis
  • understand better how private investors currently think and operate
  • discuss mitigation strategies and valuation
  • highlight ongoing start-up support activities apart from short time work etc.


The webinar will include a Q&A part with the opportunity to discuss individual situations and questions. Please submit your questions beforehand here to allow the speakers to prepare.
