BioEntrepreneur Bootcamp Munich-Oxford 2020

Are you a biomedical founding team? Do you want to design and validate your business concept during a unique incubation and training program in Oxford and Munich?

BioEntrepreneur Bootcamp gives biomedical founder teams the opportunity to design and validate their business concepts in Munich and Oxford. The programme runs over a time span of four months: 16 on-site days at the University of Oxford and at BioM in Munich, plus two days of on-line sessions and a visit to BioEurope 2020. Teams are expected to work at least another 16 days off-site on business validation, road maps and pitch presentations. Each team receives a subgrant of €10.000 to cover travel cost for at least two participants.

The main goal of the training is to empower participants to turn their invention into a start-up venture and ultimately into an innovation that is successful in the market and improves the lives of patients.
