Since 2012, BioM has been networking volunteer mentors with prospective company founders and scientists interested in commercializing their research. The mentors are experienced bio entrepreneurs, industry executives or renowned scientists experienced in commercialization. They contribute as sparring partners, support the founders with their expertise and share their valuable contacts.
The knowledge of our more than 40 mentors covers a broad range from patent law via pre-clinical and clinical development to regulatory issues. The BioM Mentor Circle enables a valuable exchange in an informal and confidential environment. The mentors' commitment is voluntary and honorary.
