Nijmegen has a strong position in research with Radboudumc, Radboud University and some large research departments of High Tech (semiconductor) companies. In total almost 10.000 researchers work on future solutions in Nijmegen. But of course, research alone is not enough to create a signicant impact on society. For this also entrepreneurship is of paramount importance.
At Novio Tech Campus, Radboudumc and Mercator Science Park many young and vibrant startups in digital health, high tech and pharma are successfully growing their business and company. Some of whom are supported by Briskr, Mercator Launch, Startup Nijmegen and other initaitives.
At the SMB meeting of 20th May we will present the current status and future plans to stimulate entrepreneurship in the region in Health & High Tech;
– Mark Janssen, member of the board of Radboudumc, will stress the importance of entrepreneurship (next to research) to create a significant impact on healthcare.
– Sven de Cleyn, managing director of imec.istart will elaborate on their plans to bring their acceleration program to our region.
– Joram Sjoerts, director of Radboudumc Valorisation, will give a presentation on how Radboudumc, with the help of the valorisation department, stimulates researchers to start up companies and bring the research to the market.
– And last but not least, two existing startups related to Radboudumc (Screenpoint Medical and Xheal Diagnostics) will share their experience as entrepreneurs to create a startup in the Nijmegen ecosystem.
Presentations are in English and the entrance is free. We welcome new guests, so please feel free to pass on this invitation to relevant people in your network!
We look forward to meeting you!
