NGI Venture Challenge

December, 2010

Thinking of starting up a company in Life Sciences? Got a great idea but not sure how to commercialise it? Then, if you're up for it, the Venture Challenge may be exactly what you're looking for. The Netherlands Genomics Initiative warmly invites all Life Sciences researchers to participate in the NGI Venture Challenge Spring 2011.

Pave your way to success

The Venture Challenge is a ‘must-do’ opportunity for all aspiring Life Sciences entrepreneurs, it is the way to receive coaching and advice on essential elements of setting up a business, thereby paving the way for your future success. It is also superb preparation for the next stage: acquiring financing, such as the Life Sciences Pre-Seed Grant.

In two 3-day workshops, the facilitators and other ‘competing’ teams will challenge you to focus your business idea to create optimal customer value, and you will learn to pitch your business case. At the end of the Challenge, the team with the best venture plan and pitch is awarded €25,000.

Apply for the NGI Venture Challenge by filling in the Venture Proposal Form — before 1 March 2011, 12:00 hrs — and send it to:info@venturechallenge.nlIf your idea passes the pre-screening, you and your team are in for a fascinating experience.
