Event description

Join GFI and Synonym, a company developing, financing and building commercial-scale biomanufacturing infrastructure, to learn about locating production capacity and how to think about biomanufacturing project finance as a way to bring more capacity online. We’ll cover:

  • The current state of biomanufacturing capacity and how to use Capacitor to locate existing capacity.
  • The benefits of off-balance-sheet financing for large-scale biomanufacturing infrastructure projects.
  • Attracting investors for large-scale biomanufacturing infrastructure projects by understanding acceptable risk.
  • The project finance and project development process.
  • Common pitfalls of large-scale infrastructure projects that limit bankability.
