Following a number of high profile fundraisings, crowdfunding in the bioscience sector is heating up and is expected to continue to grow in popularity through 2015.

Earlier this year, Cardiff based start-up Cell Therapy raised a record breaking £691 000 to finance its stem cell medicine, Heartcel. More recently, Venomtech – based at BIA member Discovery Park – completed a £353 296 fundraise on crowdfunding site, SyndicateRoom.
