Emergence hosts Risk Management workshop for Atlantic startups with Partner, JLT Canada

February 15, 2018

The BioScience sector is becoming increasingly populated by smaller R&D labs and innovative startups, all while larger pharma and biotech companies are focussed on acquisitions and consolidation.

This, together with the need for longer and larger clinical trials, increased regulation and regulatory compliance, economic and legislative issues, the challenges of contract manufacturing, attracting funding, and the need for secure data and IT networks, are just some of the other emerging challenges that the bioscience sector is facing.

Change is one way to describe these shifts – increased risk exposure for emerging ventures is another!

Do you have the appropriate coverage in place to protect your venture from such risk exposure?
