Boost Seminar: Attract Investors and Industry Partners

Building on the success from April’s seminar, Medicon Valley Alliance in cooperation with DNB invites you to participate in a second network meeting on how to attract investors and industry partners to a life science company. At the meeting you will also have the opportunity to present your technology / business plan to any of the cooperating partners in a 1-1 setting.
Future Success
Attracting interest from investors and industry partners lies at the core of most successful life science ventures. In the current funding environment, where there is simply not enough capital available to fund all the promising projects, these processes are more important than ever: Success in creating investor/partner interest is likely to distinguish the future winners from those companies that will not be given the chance to use the full potential of their technologies/products.
Hear Lubor Gaal describe how BMS looks at licensing, Eugen Steiner from HealthCap shed light on the venture capitalists’ point of view, and ex-entrepreneur Øyvind W. Brekke discuss how DNB as a bank can play a role even for early-stage companies.
Following the presentations, you will have the opportunity to discuss your technology / business plan to any of the presenters in 1-1 meetings.
