The current stock market environment for small biotechs is tough even by historical standards. Many biotechs are now trading below cash value and IPOs have slowed significantly. In the current environment, companies are having to consider alternative methods for raising capital to advance clinical trials and R&D pipelines.

In a panel discussion at the 2022 BIO International Convention (BIO2022), experts in biotech investment and capital management covered some of these specialized financing mechanisms, such as private investments in public entities (PIPEs), royalty deals, and other structured deals that use pipelines as collateral. Moderated by Celia Economides, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Gritstone Bio, the session included:
Igor DaCruz, Managing Director at Runway Growth Capital
Cecilia Gonzalo, Partner at Oberland Capital Management
Marshall Urist, MD, PhD, Executive Vice President and Head of Research & Investment of Royalty Pharma Management, LLC
