The right funding at the right time: how to make the right call?

What types of local or European grants are available for life sciences start-ups? What do you do when it is too late for Venture Capital and too early for Private Equity? What is the best financing strategy when transitioning from a bio-incubator into your own facilities? Are you aware of the existing tax incentives to optimise your business plan?

There are so many questions about the best funding & financing strategies from start-up to scale-up and beyond.


Attending this one-day event, you will hear from experts and experienced entrepreneurs about the current state of funding options for life sciences companies and how to optimise your business plan along the way. In the afternoon you will have the possibility to ask the experts tailormade advice in one-on-one meetings on all aspects related to funding and business plan optimisation.
