For the past 4 years, the Swiss Biotech Association has been successfully hosting CEO meetings for the leaders of this industry. Now we are extending this opportunity to connect and collaborate with CFOs, and are delighted to invite you to this first informal peer-to-peer exchange.

The Swiss Biotech Association aims to create an informal and engaging environment where you can openly discuss your specific needs as CFO in the biotech industry. We like to exchange ideas, share experiences, and collaboratively shape the ideal framework conditions to raise financial resources and enable partnering for biotechs.

In addition to this enriching exchange, we will introduce you to our latest initiatives, programs to grow and strengthen the industry’s attractiveness for investors. Your presence and insights are crucial for the event’s success. We kindly invite you sharing your ideas to shape our program while registering.
