BCF Innovation Award

Calling Young & Innovative Companies in Life Sciences:

Connect - Present - Win!

As a small innovative company in Life Sciences, you can offer rewarding job opportunities and be a great employer to candidates. However, most job seekers often focus on larger companies in their job search, ignoring the smaller ones. One of the main reasons is that they simply are not aware of the smaller employers and the career possibilities that you can offer.


Since the Life Sciences industry is a relatively young and dynamic sector, characterised by many innovative, research-oriented start-ups and scale-ups, we believe that there is a lot to gain by introducing these exciting young companies to job seekers.


With the BCF Innovation Award, we want to give young innovative Life Sciences companies exposure and put you in the spotlight, so that you can attract the right talent to help grow your company.


So is your company young, research-driven and working on a Life Sciences solution or product? Do you want to increase your visibility and brand awareness in the sector and make it easier for your company to attract talents? Then apply for the BCF Innovation Award 2020 and:

  • Get exposure via our website, direct mailings, and social media - reaching 10,000+ professionals in Life Sciences.
  • Meet & connect with new talent at BCF Career Event on 30 September, with 2,000+ participants.
  • Have the opportunity to win BCF Innovation Award 2020*, worth €2,500 in exposure & services from Hyphen Projects (a.o. Innovation for Health and BCFjobs)
    * Only for the companies that are going to pitch.


During BCF Career Event on 30 September 2020 at Jaarbeurs Utrecht the audience can vote for the best pitch using their mobile phones.


The company that gets the most votes from the audience, will win the BCF Innovation Award 2020. Besides exposure that comes along with the Award, the winner will also get a promotion package from Hyphen Projects worth €2,500 in value of Hyphen Projects products and services.
