How do you become a successful innovative entrepreneur?

Starting and running a business has many dimensions, especially in the Chemistry, Life Sciences, Health and High-Tech sectors. You are educated as a scientist, but now the external environment and your employees expect that you behave like a real entrepreneur. What does this mean? How and when do you take crucial steps leading to success? Or are you a starting entrepreneur that wants to share you experience?

Come to the #InnoBoot at April, 11th 2017 at the iLab Nijmegen, location Novio Tech Campus. Get inspired by pitches and presentations of experienced entrepreneurs and creative innovators. Ask questions, meet energetic colleagues and learn more by sharing each other’s experiences.

Innovative nanomedicines is the key theme of the #InnoBoot. From the academic as well as the business perspective, different facets of nanomedicine and business development are discussed. During the pitches and the feedback session, we will search for answers to familiar issues and problems, resulting in value for yourself and your associates.
