The Life Science Pitch Bowl: Teams from research institutes with their own start-up projects pitch their founding idea on stage!

The Life Science Factory initiated by Sartorius will be hosting the Life Science Pitch Bowl evening on February 12, 2020, starting at 5:00 p.m., together with the start-up support program of the Georg August University of Goettingen, Germany, in the "Alte Mensa" on Wilhelmsplatz.

The Life Science Pitch Bowl is the closing event of the Life Science Track from the Fraunhofer AHEAD program: A six-month accelerator program for the demand-oriented support of life science start-ups from research institutes. Founders from the life sciences who want to take the step from institutes into business were supported by experienced life science entrepreneurs and coaches through expert lectures, workshops and 1-on-1 sessions.

On the evening of the Life Science Pitch Bowl and at the end of the AHEAD Life Science Track, some founders will have the opportunity to present their start-up idea to a broad audience. In the Fish Bowl Pitch they will receive detailed feedback from a jury of experts and the audience.

The range of participating teams at this year's AHEAD Life Science Track shows the versatility of the life science sector. With TissueGrinder, CH3F, Merlin, PeriPower and NeutroCheck, projects from the fields of industrial biotechnology, clinical medicine, medical technology and life science tools & software were represented.

What awaits the guests on this evening:

  • Up-and-coming start-ups will present themselves and their founding idea in pitches - in accordance with the "Fishbowl Pitch" format, they will receive feedback from an expert jury consisting of experienced founders and investors, and take questions from the audience
  • The best-practice examples presented are intended as inspiration
  • A concluding get-together offers the opportunity for exchange and the chance to establish direct contact with the active start-up scene in the life sciences

The Life Science Factory cordially invites people interested in setting up a business, scientists, supporters, students, innovators and entrepreneurs to get to know up-and-coming start-ups on this evening and to get into conversation with the inspiring founders and founders!
