Venture Challenge: Develop your business case
The Venture Challenge: a 10-week programme to develop an initial idea – a breakthrough research result – into a solid business case.
When participating in this programme you will learn to build a customer value proposition, identify key risks and assumptions, develop a validation and de-risking strategy, build and pitch a venture plan and get connected to Life Sciences experts, investors and seasoned entrepreneurs.
The Venture Challenge consists of a series of bootcamps and coaching sessions; it takes around three months from start to finish. Guided by a dedicated team of experienced trainers and challenged by your peers and industry experts you will translate your invention into a viable business idea.
After the bootcamps and coaching sessions you will be introduced to representatives of all relevant early stage life Sciences investors and you pitch your venture to the Venture Challenge jury, consisting of seasoned entrepreneurs and investors, who will then decide who takes home the €25,000 prize money. The winner of the Venture Challenge will be publically announced at a large life sciences business conference offering great exposure.
