Brightlands organizes, in the framework of the Hyperegio project BusyBee, the Digital Health and Wearables Event.
This unique event connects academia, entrepreneurs and investors in the Meuse–Rhine Euroregion working in digital health and wearables. The goal is to foster networking and matchmaking, as well as to inspire researchers who are looking to translate their academic interest into business ventures.
The main event (June 20, 2019) comprises a startup investment session, in which selected startups from the Meuse–Rhine Euroregion will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to an investor panel specialized in digital health and wearables. Matchmaking between startups and knowledge institutions will be facilitated. In the second part of the program, a panel will discuss the journey to academic entrepreneurship, opportunities and challenges, including scientists’ personal experiences and investors’ point of view.
Before the main event, in a so-called preparation day (June 6, 2019), the selected startups are invited to participate in a coaching session. A workshop on storytelling for academic entrepreneurship will close the preparation day.
Location: Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus
Pitch Coach Giuseppe Marzio
A former scientist turned communication-pro, Giuseppe Marzio has 15+ years of experience in Healthcare. He is a sought-after presentation and pitch expert and has worked with some of the most innovative businesses in Healthcare, from startups to VCs to large corporations. Giuseppe believes that success starts from a clear strategic story. Companies that don't have a clearly articulated story don't have a clear and properly thought-out business strategy. He founded his presentation firm, Chiaro in order to empower Healthcare entrepreneurs to communicate the story behind their idea, product, and company. And in case you were wondering, ‘chiaro’ is Italian for clear and understandable - but also bright and brilliant. Find out more at www.Chiaro.nl
