GREAT DISCUSSIONS IN OUR STARTUP WORKSHOPS

In four workshops, future entrepreneurs also had the chance to learn more about crucial topics every startup inevitably needs to face such as financing, negotiating with investors, building up and maintaining a team, and the impact of collaborations on marketing their idea. Our workshop moderators from EIT Health Munich, High-Tech Gründerfonds Management GmbH, Cooley LLP Boston, MA, Morse Barnes-Brown Pendleton, Waltham, MA, and WMC Healthcare Munich provided expertise and best practice.

MODERATION
Finally, we would like to thank our amazing summit moderators, John Hallinan, for his experience and broad perspective as well as John Hession for guiding and mentoring us through the pitching sessions of the Life Sciences Venture Market.
