“Life sciences is a key sector to drive growth. I’m excited to see Portal Innovations set up shop in Illinois and build a groundbreaking venture.”
Portal Innovations will continue to build upon its Chicago success to disrupt the established means by which innovations affecting biotech and medical devices are sourced and brought to market. There are many significant markets where life sciences academic-to-commercial translation remains underserved and where developers look to establish more “hardware” or space, thereby increasing the demand for Portal’s innovative crafted capital approach to build the best life sciences companies.
Atlanta, like Chicago, possesses all of the academic and medical research institutions, resources, civic leadership and talent necessary to establish a world-class life sciences innovation hub, where companies can start up and scale. Portal’s role in Atlanta’s emerging life sciences ecosystem is to build a world class early-stage biotech portfolio while bringing together the entire ecosystem to allow these companies to thrive and scale locally.
Portal is led by an accomplished team of life science leaders who operate with collaboration, transparency, and intense action.
