Life Sciences Baltics 2023 Startup Masterclass Training
Sep 12 - Sep 21

We are inviting HealthTech, MedTech and BioTech start-ups, researchers and students who have scientific or innovative ideas to participate in the Life Sciences Baltics 2023 masterclass training programme. This is being organised by the Life Sciences Baltics and Baltic Sandbox Ventures teams.

Don’t miss the opportunity to gain practical knowledge and valuable advice from some of the leading experts in the European life sciences ecosystem. They will advise on topics ranging from developing an intellectual property strategy and refining the value proposition to commercialising innovations and effectively pitching to investors.

Programme participants will get access to the international Baltic Sandbox Ventures mentoring portfolio and will be able to collaborate and share their experiences with other ambitious entrepreneurs. Each team will also receive personalised assistance to improve individual performance indicators.

The two best teams will have the opportunity to present their ideas at the Startup Pitch Battle – a special Life Sciences Baltics 2023 event where the winners will receive valuable sponsor prizes and an investment of up to EUR 125,000 to develop the idea.
