Welcome to MVA Oncology Network and our 6th meeting – an investor pitch evening!
Medicon Valley Alliance Oncology Network set up by prof. and entrepreneur Nils Brünner (University of Copenhagen) and prof. and entrepreneur Carl Borrebaeck, (Lund University) has now been up and running for two year.
To celebrate these succesful years, Medicon Valley Alliance, together with Lund University and University of Copenhagen, are happy to invite you to the 6th MVA Oncology Network meeting, which will be a full-time pitch and networking evening:
|Date:||5 September 2018|
|Time:||17:00 – 20:00|
|Venue:||Auditorium, Medicon Village, Scheelevägen 2, 223 63 Lund|

The meeting will be a pitch-evening where we bring together life science investors with oncology actors. Four investors are given the opportunity to briefly highlight what companies/projects they are interested in and five oncology network organizations are given the opportunity to pitch their projects/products/business concept. In addition, we have plenty of networking time to allow investors and all meeting participants to interact with each other. Come and network with us!
MVA Oncology Network is a professional and social network within oncology. The network focuses on best practice, experience and current challenges for public-private collaboration and the commercialization of oncology related R&D in the Medicon Valley region. The network consists of gprofessors, PI and corporate level executives from the regional oncology eco-system. Joining the network is free of charge and is limited to Medicon Valley Alliance members only. However, non-member organizations and companies are welcome to attend one network event to evaluate if joining the network is relevant.
