This workshop is for C-level executives of midmarket medtech and biotech companies seeking to fund their international expansion, or to identify JV and M&A options overseas. Expanding a company’s reach beyond its home country offers enormous business potential but is generally a complicated endeavor. During this workshop, selected investors, professionals and executives will share their experience in managing the challenges of international expansion.

A one-day forum on the international expansion of SMEs
Provence Promotion will be back on the East Coast on June 13 next alongside its partner Triana for a workshop focusing on the biotechnology and medical technology sectors. This day-long event will have as its theme the international expansion of small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and the attractiveness of the Provence region to companies in these sectors.

Two companies that received local set-up assistance from Provence Promotion, Oran Diagnostics and DoseWatch, have been invited to talk about their experiences at a round table.

The first of these companies markets innovative diagnostic tests, while the second has developed “intelligent” packaging for medicines that can gauge a patient’s acceptance of a medical treatment.

Over the two-hour round table, representatives from the two companies will be presenting the regulatory and tax advantages France has to offer and the opportunities made available by the Provence Region for businesses in the life sciences sector either starting up or undertaking product development.

The investment partnership between Provence Promotion and Viveris Management for its part will be highlighting financial solutions for venture capital and development capital needs.

The event will also be an opportunity for Matthieu Vis, the life sciences project head at Provence Promotion, to present to sector professionals the advantages of France’s research tax credit (CIR) and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region’s “Fonds PACA Investissement” financial scheme, which has undertaken a number of successful fund-raising campaigns since its inception in December 2009.
