Jonny's back! 2017 saw a banner first half, driven in part by advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning for healthcare applications and a surge in Series A investments. With 2017 in the review mirror, Jon Norris takes a look at – and makes sense of – the past trends to provide an informed look into 2018.

As the 2018 investment market takes shape, what can we expect for the IPO and M&A markets? Jon will share his expertise and provide insight into:

  • How the 2017 healthcare landscape compares to previous years
  • Current and total healthcare and sector investments
  • Which Biopharma indications attracted the most funds
  • Which venture firms are most active
  • Changes in the past crossover phenomenon
  • Exits: the trends in IPOs and M&A's
