The participants of the EIT Health BioEntrepreneur Bootcamp
The eight-week EIT Health BioEntrepreneur Bootcamp took place at BioM in June and July. Ten founding teams from across Europe benefited from the intensive coaching to design and validate their business concepts, focussing on drug development, diagnostics, and services for research. The program included meetings with BioM Mentor Circle members, expert presentations, discussions with stakeholders, and numerous networking events. Each team worked on optimizing their business strategies according to market needs and prepared for future investor search. After four weeks of coaching at BioM in Martinsried/Munich, the participants travelled to partner organisations in London, Paris, and Delft to meet other stakeholders, and to get to know further European key-markets. On July 24, the bootcamp experts, BioM mentors, and EIT Health partners are invited to the “Acceleration Day” at the IZB in Martinsried. This is not just about presenting the business ideas to a jury of experts, but also about celebrating the progress together. The Bootcamp was organized by BioM and the European research consortium EIT Health. Next year, BioM, with the support of the Bavarian Ministry of Economy, organizes a BioEntrepreneur Bootcamp exclusively for founders from Bavaria.
