Getting your Life Sciences and Health or Biotechnology startup going comes with many challenges. The unlock_ Incubation Program is an entrepreneurship program to support seed-stage Life Science and Biotechnology startups in becoming "economically active". In other words: raise money, strategically spend money and build healthy teams. We do this by having you answer the question: 'How can we help you?'
During the 12-month Incubation Program we will support you in identifying the blind spots in your business model and to develop a validation strategy. The program is based on the Healthtech Innovation Cycle, a scientific model designed specifically for Life Science and Biotech entrepreneurs.
In this program, you will unlock:
  • Your investor readiness;
  • Your hard & soft business skills;
  • The largest Life Science & Health network in the Netherlands. 

Apply before February 15!

This is unlock_ Incubation:

Each Life Sciences and Biotech company has their own unique set of challenges. In order to accommodate your specific needs, we challenge you to answer the following question: 'how can we help you?'

With this idea the unlock_ Incubation Program has been divided into two parts: 

  1. The Onboarding in which you will follow 9 highly interactive sessions over 3 months to challenge you to answer questions and gain insights around: your business proposition, your investor readiness and your soft skills
  2. The Tailor-made program for 9 months which you can design based on your own specific needs. The insights you gathered in the first 3 months during the onboarding will help shape your unique deliverables for this period. There are also two sprints during this period focusing on Market Access & Reimbursement, and Building Team Culture & Becoming a Key Opinion Leader. 

Furthermore, you will receive the support and the access to the venture capital and Biotech network needed for your startup.
