Our biobusiness track BioBusiness Summer School (NL) starts with an introductory course for academics who are contemplating a career switch to industry and young professionals in their first industry jobs. This course will help you jumpstart your business career in the Life Sciences industry. During the five day programme you will learn the basics of the main business topics, such as product development, intellectual property rights, business models and finance. You will also gain insight into the world of Life Sciences companies, meet leading business people and expand your international network.
A new course in our BioBusiness track is the BioBusiness Winter Retreat in Belgium. Whether you are still in academia (as PhD student or postdoc) or already working in industry, this course will help you reflect on the developments in the fast-changing Life Sciences industry and your place in it. The programme looks at the trends and developments in the Life Science sector, gives examples of emerging business models and discusses funding and partnering strategies for Life Sciences companies. This knowledge will allow you to steer your career in such a way that it benefits the most from the changing landscape.
The next courses in our industry track are part of the Business Development Programme. This is an accelerator programme for professionals in business development in the Life Sciences.
- The first module, the Business Development Course, is specifically aimed at junior to mid-level BD professionals who are driven to expand their knowledge on the BD process and to strengthen their BD competences. Most BD professionals in this sector have a scientific background and are not trained to think and act commercially and be business minded. During this intensive two-day course, experienced BD executives and experts will share their experiences and insights and provide practical tips concerning topics such as partner search, valuation, negotiation, legal aspects, deal structures and finance.
- The second module, the Global Scale-up - US Investment Tour, allows you to develop the knowledge and entrepreneurial skills necessary for scaling-up a life sciences and medical devices venture. You begin by making a baseline assessment to determine your starting point as a venture compared with US and European competitors. Based on the outcome, you will get one-on-one mentoring to assist you with your decision-making on how to increase the value of your venture. Subsequently you will embark upon a US investment journey to Southern California. This module is powered by main partner Health~Holland.
- In the third module, the Global Investor Forum, you get to apply the skills acquired in the previous two modules in obtaining funding, scaling-up and developing your company. During this module you will come in direct contact with leading investors, influencers and world-experts in life sciences. It features two days of pitches to investors, lectures, networking events and attending the leading life science conference in the Netherlands, Innovation for Health. This module is powered by main partner Health~Holland.
