The 2015 edition of BioInnovation Day
will return to Lausanne in June.


Building upon the success of previous editions, Bioinnovation Day 2015 will provide an opportunity for researchers, scientist-entrepreneurs and early-stage start-up ventures to pitch their projects to an audience of peers, venture capitalists, investors and licensing / partnering professionals from industry.

The 2015 edition will be structured around several keynote speeches. Invited speakers will cover important issues for entrepreneurs ranging from partnering and funding opportunities to the business side of managing a life-science start-up company and transforming innovative research ideas into a viable and functional company. The programme will include a round table discussion with leading members of the venture capital community, as well as presentations from a serial entrepreneur of several successful life science companies and a promising start-up company which can trace its origins back to a previous BioInnovation Day pitch.

We are pleased to present for the second time the BioInnovation-Eclosion Prize, a cash prize of CHF 10,000, which will be awarded to the most innovative project. This prize, generously donated by Fondation Eclosion, will be open to all projects pitched during the meeting.
