Charité Entrepreneurship Summit 2016
The 9th Charité Entrepreneurship Summit was held on May 26-27, 2016, in Berlin and it was a huge success! We would like to say a Big Thank You to every participant and attendee for all your great contributions, and for your active roles at our event! Here are some great moments from the Summit.
We hosted over 400 international medical entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, physicians, and scientists from around the world! Thanks go to the 80 outstanding summit speakers who actively participated over two days in 6 panel discussions, 7 workshops and the Life Sciences Venture Market.
One of the highlights of the 2016 Charité Summit was our special collaboration with Canada as a partner country. We were delighted to feature Canadian innovations in life sciences and medicine and invited some outstanding business leaders who proudly represented Canada from coast to coast. The newly founded Canada-Germany Program partnership between CQDM the ZIM Program of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) also announced its first project worth a total of CAD$1 million.

The 2016 Life Sciences Venture Market was truly international and uncovered talents from Estonia, Israel, Italy, Poland, the USA and, of course, our home country, Germany. Congratulations to all who were selected to pitch, especially to our three winners.
We very appreciate the great support of our long-term partners Peppermint VenturePartners and Berlin Partner, as well as all of our other wonderful partners. We would like to express a very special thank you to the amazing Summit moderator, John Hession, whose jazzy and effective energy set the tone of the 2016 Charité Summit.
