Fellowships for BioEntrepreneurship program available

October 26 - 30, 2020

USI, Lugano

Swiss Healthcare Startups is teaming up with Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) again! This time we offer a few fellowships for the BioBusiness advanced short program on BioEntrepreneurship at USI.

Entrepreneurship, Life Sciences and Venture Finance have been integrated in a progressive order of thematic clusters. With a common denominator — the creation and financing of BioEnterprises — they range from basics in BioBusiness to opportunity recognition and startup creation, including mandatory regulatory and legal aspects as well as financing, to end with an overview of possible exit strategies.

USI and SHS are offering several fellowships worth CHF 4’000 each and covering the whole registration fees for SHS members (for startups only. Learn how to become a member here).

The program is tailored to the needs of individuals planning to create and finance successful biotechnology companies:

  • Scientists and engineers wishing to commercialize drugs and technologies.
  • Entrepreneurs and managers from pharmaceutical or biotech startups who wish to explore and gain an insight into the global biotechnology sector.

The number of participants is limited to 30.

Deadline for sending the application package (application form & CV of the applicant) to is 15 March 2020.
