SATELLITE ACTIVITIES | Entrepreneurship Forum
Entrepreneurship Forum

Scientific entrepreneurship is becoming increasingly important as part of the progress towards a knowledge-based economy, particularly in the most developed countries.

Entrepreneurship represents an engine to bring to society the new knowledge generated thanks to R&D as well as a possible path for the future personal and professional development of researchers, especially the youngest.

For that reasons, the FEBS3+ Congress includes as part of its programme two specific sessions specifically devoted to entrepreneurship from biomed & biotech research, with the name of Entrepreneurship Forum.

Entrepreneurship Forum - Session 1: October 24th, from 6 to 8 pm
Round table "From Biosciences research to market through start-ups"

What are the most effective incubation models to support start-up creation? What may we learn from the most relevant current tendencies in supporting Biotech start-ups in France, Portugal or Spain?

The round table will count with the participation of relevant representatives from public and private agents acting in the world of start-up & spin-off support as well as success cases of entrepreneurship in the Biotech sector.

Confirmed speakers:
  • Ion Arocena. General Director of ASEBIO (The Spanish Association of Biotech Firms).
  • Albert Barberà. General Director of Health Research and Innovation, Generalitat de Catalunya, formerly Director of BioCat (the Agency of the Catalan BioRegion).
  • Carlos José Fialho da Costa Faro. Vicepresident of BIOCANT Park (Portugal Biotechnology Science Park).
Other speakers from the three participating countries, pending of confirmation. 

Entrepreneurship Forum - Session 2: October 25th, from 6 to 8 pm
Workshop “Raising funds for your start-up: The elevator pitch”

The elevator pitch is the most universal and recognized tool to present your start-up project in front of potential investors, from business angels to venture funds. There are plenty of start-up contests worldwide where the elevator pitch is crucial to have success.

Have you an idea for a start-up? Come and learn how to prepare an elevator pitch. Have you a start-up project, already? Would you like to present your elevator pitch at the FEBS3+ meeting?
