Celebrate brilliant minds behind scientific start-ups and spin-offs brought to you by DKFZ and Heidelberg Startup Partners e.V., in partnership with EMBLEM, University of Heidelberg and University Hospital Heidelberg. Marking 20 years of DKFZ Technology Transfer, this symposium will bring together scientists, entrepreneurs and investors from all over Germany.

“What do you need to succeed at entrepreneurship? What are the challenges of funding your business? Can you be a part-time entrepreneur whilst continuing with science? What is trending in the Life Science industry?” – are just some of the topics that will be discussed. Breakthroughs in Life Sciences and Healthcare sectors happen because of the researchers overcoming many challenges despite the odds. This symposium is a celebration of such outstanding individuals – both those who are already changing the landscape of healthcare and those who are yet to do so.

This event will cover everything from figuring out what a business needs to how relevant your research is in the Life Science & Medical landscape. With a culmination of a Dragon’s Den competition, a business pitch from 5 short-listed candidates, where the best idea and the best pitch will win €2,500 each and a chance to be mentored.

The main objective of this event is to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs in science. This event will provide opportunities for learning about building a business from scratch and inspire discussions between scientists, entrepreneurs and investors.

This symposium will be open (19 September 2017) to anyone interested in bringing their science to market, in particular in and around Heidelberg area. A variety of backgrounds including but not limited to life science academics, biobusiness leaders, industry experts and investors in areas of biotech, Medtech and pharma are expected.
