Science Meets Business: ‘Crossing Borders: Boost your health innovation!'

SMB, Health Valley and Oost NL kindly invite you for Science Meets Business: 

Theme: ‘Crossing Borders: Boost your health innovation!'

We will start the new year with an inspiring session on international growth by sharing information on the international programs Boost4Health and MIND Interreg. And of course we will be sharing experiences with and from other entrepreneurs.

Both programs have the objective to link international innovative entrepreneurs and SME’s to each other and to knowledge institutes to enable cooperation between suitable partners and to accelerate the development in the area of validation and market access. OostNV is looking for parties that are interested in this type of cooperation and/or open to contribute to the growth of SME’s from other countries. Both programs offer (small) grant opportunities to enable international cooperation.

SMB Life Sciences report:
We’re proud of yet another succesful SMB meeting that focused on crossing borders. The meeting was held on Tuesday January 24, 2017 at Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen in close cooperation with our partners Oost NV and Health Valley.

Did you know that Oost NV can help boost your health innovation abroad through progams like Boost4Health and Interreg? And Health Valley has an extensive international network as well? All presentations are available on our website should you have missed the meeting or wish to look at the information again.

We would like to thank the two entrepreneurs, Laszlo Bax (Braingaze) and Ypke van Oosterhout (Xenikos), who took the time to share their international experiences (tips & trics, do’s and don’ts) with regards to venturing abroad. We would have never guessed it would take more than 5 months to open a bank account in a foreign country. Improvement is much needed here!

We finished the meeting with drinks & bites and of course ample room for networking!
