CCRM Australia has partnered with local and international venture capital firms to launch the International Regenerative Medicine SuperPitch. The SuperPitch offers expertise and investment funding for translation and commercialisation of Australian regenerative medicine and related projects. CCRM Australia’s SuperPitch IV extends to CCRM Hubs in Canada, the Netherlands and the Nordic States.

Regenerative medicine includes technologies and therapies that regenerate or replace injured, diseased, or defective cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish function and structure. Submissions may relate to cell therapies, gene therapies, combination therapies, gene editing tools, enabling technologies such as vector production, automated analytical essays, biosensors, novel media, and other projects related to regenerative medicine in a wide range of therapeutic areas.

The International Regenerative Medicine SuperPitch IV provides an opportunity for companies and researchers to showcase their technologies or ideas. Expert feedback, commercialisation support from CCRM Australia and, for suitable projects, further development funding will be made available. The participation of partners with expertise in various specialties and lifecycle stages empowers the SuperPitch to streamline progress from proof of concept through to clinical trials.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to provide a forty-minute presentation, which must include objective data on their technologies to a panel of regenerative medicine, venture capital and commercialisation experts from the consortia. The International Regenerative Medicine SuperPitch IV will be held online on 18th of November 2021. The video conferencing application Zoom will be used for all participants.
