Animal Health Curious Innovation series (Wellington)

Animal Health Curious?

BioTechNZ is running the Animal Health Curious Innovation series across Aotearoa with the support of Callaghan Innovation.

Our host for the #1 in the series is Wellington UniVentures and Brandon Capital, so please join us for this networking opportunity to connect with colleagues, hear about new innovations, create potential new partnerships and hear about new investment funds and opportunities.

Aotearoa New Zealand’s rich agricultural history and economy is built on primary production with animals playing an important role in our lives. Local biotech companies have also developed strengths in niche fields within the animal health and research sector.

Improving animal health requires a multi-disciplinary approach and our new event series aims to create greater connections, collaboration and increased research outcomes. This includes animal health professionals, industry, policymakers, researchers and other stakeholders.

Please bring a friend, colleague or plus one who is interested in animal health to help build our community.
