We are delighted to announce that we are back with another Episode of o2h ChaiTime Season 3.

Over the recent months, we have seen three companies in o2h Ventures portfolio either list on AiM, reverse onto the TSX and others that are considering a flotation on NASDAQ. We have seen over 100 Biotech IPOs in 2020, double the year earlier. Do our British bankers still have the scars of the fallen star ‘British Biotech’ in the late 90’s and thus happy to let the best UK biotech to float for billions across the globe or are they now happy to let these demons rest.
