Participants from the ‘Biotalleres MERLIN’, co-organised with cluster BIOGA in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, participated on the 8th edition of “Bio Investors Day” event. This investment event is funded and supported by the regional innovation agency of Galicia. 15 investment companies, from public to private, business angels to VCs, attended the event, which consisted on two parts: a round of ten pitches in the morning, followed by face-to-face meetings with investors on the afternoon. Matchmaking was performed before the event and during the pitching session, where investors selected which participants they wanted to meet with. 4 participants from MERLIN activities where selected to attend the “Bio Investors Day”: Traffik Gene, Panel CRC, Stelabus and MatPrint. They had the opportunity to talk not only to investors, but also to other startups from the Galician ecosystem which were also invited to participate. In total, MERLIN participants had 14 meetings.
