Save the date! BioEntrepreneurship Summit 2017 - October 10-11, 2017 in Munich

We would like to cordially invite you to the BioEntrepreneurship Summit 2017 taking place in beautiful Munich on October 10 and 11 this year!

Launching a life science or health tech venture is among the most complex and risky entrepreneurial undertaking, given extremely long development cycles, a strictly regulated approval process, high levels of technological and market uncertainty, and often extraordinary capital requirements. Technology convergence and the transformation of healthcare towards digital and personalized medicine enables entirely new products and services and paves the way for new business models but also poses a challenge for future or actual founders. BioEntrepreneurs largely profit from sector-specific support and specialized training and acceleration. They need to have access to experience in a multitude of disciplines as well as an extensive network to build sustainable ventures.

The BioEntrepreneurship Summit aims to bring together all relevant stakeholders of the bioentrepreneurial and health tech ecosystem to inspire and to celebrate life science entrepreneurship.
