I think we need experienced people to educate scientists about start-ups. Fortunately, the BioBusiness Masterclass from HollandBIO features a lot of training in this field.”   Markwin Velders, VP Operations Kite Pharma.

The Masterclass modules

The Masterclass offers six distinctive 2.5 day modules. Each module consists of an opening night featuring the lecture of a biotech entrepreneur, followed by two full course days focusing on a specific business element essential for product development in the life sciences: either business skills, personal effectiveness or business plan development. The module finance, for example, teaches you how to convince potential investors of your business plan. During the module on leadership, you’ll find the management style that enables you to achieve your goals. Other modules include business planning, intellectual property rights, and business development.

 Together with my peer students, coaches and professional lecturers, I brought the business plan of Toxys to the next level. The Business Masterclass is a ‘Must-Do’ for all starting entrepreneurs in the life sciences.” 

Giel Hendriks, Toxys. Winner of the BioBusiness Masterclass Award 2o15
