The efficient translation of scientific inventions and innovations into novel therapies, services and products, is a key factor of the Life Sciences success model in Switzerland. The combination of Zurich’s vast talent pool and excellent research institutions has in recent years given rise to a number of successful spin-off companies.
To further strengthen this academic value creation environment, IREM's BioEntrepreneurship & Innovation (BEI) Program offers a “hands-on” education and training for Life Sciences, MedTech, and Pharma researchers who aspire to become successful BioEntrepreneurs.
In IREM’s FoundersLab, we train aspiring BioEntrepreneurs in how to bring ideas and research results to the market, as well as how to overcome the classical founders pitfalls, guided by experienced, successful “Entrepreneurs in Residence”. The BEI program covers the essential skills and know-how (IP, business plan, regulatory and negotiation strategies, etc.) for the creation of a spin-off company.
