Venture Challenge Fall 2017: Participating means accelerating!


The specialised coaching programme of LifeSciences@Work focuses on developing initial idea of entrepreneurial scientists into a solid business case. During boot camps, 1-on-1 coaching and mentoring, startup teams learn to identify key risks, analyse customer value propositions, develop a validation strategy, and, ultimately, learn to build a venture plan.


The Venture Challenge is specifically designed for startups/spin-offs in the biotech and medtech sector. This Fall LifeSciences@Work will already organise the 18th edition. After the 10-week programme the teams are able to pitch for the Venture Challenge Jury. The best pitch and venture plan will take home €25,000 prize money. LifeSciences@Work invite all interested startups to apply before September 4, 2017. See the website for more information, previous teams, deadlines and boot camp dates. If you have any questions, please contact Chrétien Herben (venturechallenge@health-holland.com).

The Venture Challenge is the bi-annual valorisation programme of the Top Sector Life Sciences & Health.
