Spring edition Venture Challenge for starters in Life Sciences open for proposals
Venture Challenge is looking for starting companies in the Life Sciences who want to receive coaching and advice on essential elements of setting up a business, thereby paving the way for future success. The submission deadline is March 9, 2015. In two 3-day workshops ‘competing’ teams will be challenged to write business plans, to learn how to pitch business cases and more valuable coaching. At the end of the Challenge, the team with the best Venture Plan and pitch is awarded a moneyprize.
A dedicated team offers their expertise to life sciences researchers to translate inventions into viable business ideas. The Venture Challenge is a ‘must-do’ opportunity for all aspiring Life Sciences entrepreneurs. The Life Sciences & Health Venture Challenge is part of the LifeSciences@Work support programme.
The first Venture Challenge was held in the fall of 2008. Eleven editions were sponsored by the Netherlands Genomics Initiative (NGI). Since 2014 the Venture Challenge is sponsored by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Life Sciences Health and BioGeneration Ventures.
