In April 2022, Portal announced the expansion of its premier life sciences-focused venture development engine to Atlanta, in an upcoming development called Science Square, located near the heart of downtown. We’re excited for our Atlanta expansion and look forward to supporting the life sciences community to allow companies to grow and scale locally. Between the CDC, and top-tier research universities in the area, we view Atlanta as one of the top emerging life sciences markets in the U.S. and would like to support continued growth here, helping it become a robust biotech startup ecosystem.

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.
