16th April 2021, London - PSYCH, the premier market intelligence and events firm that
aims to unlock the potential of psychedelics in healthcare, is launching the PSYCH Investor
Summit: Europe & Asia. The virtual event, powered by industry-leaders in cannabis and
psychedelics data intelligence Prohibition Partners, aims to promote the potential of
psychedelics in the healthcare industry and provide businesses the opportunity to showcase
their projects directly to European and APAC investors and funds.

in the spotlight, and as consumers look for new options to improve their mental health, the
growing significance of the potential of psychedelics is pushing the healthcare industry to
respond with solutions. The global psychedelics industry is expected to be worth over
US$100 billion, and as attitudes towards psychedelics shift dramatically, we are witnessing
an international rise in clinical trials, academic research and commercial investment.
The PSYCH Investor Summit: Europe & Asia, taking place on the 21st April, will examine
how new therapies are tackling the mental health pandemic, why microdosing is set to
disrupt the mainstream and how legislation is expected to develop in seminal markets.
Participants will also have the opportunity to engage with distinguished industry leaders,
rising entrepreneurs and global psychedelics investors to share insights and help push
forward this increasingly relevant industry.
According to PSYCH co-founder Stephen Murphy, “The heightened focus on finding better
solutions for mental health conditions that psychedelics can treat, combined with a wave of
ongoing research that is coming to fruition, is leading to rapid rates of acceptance in
mainstream medicine and increased investor interest. As an industry backed by science with
the potential to revolutionise healthcare, PSYCH's purpose is to contribute to the
advancement of this emerging frontier, while supporting the growth of businesses and giving
them the opportunity to achieve global recognition for their groundbreaking
