How broadly do you define ‘Life Sciences & Health’?
We invest in promising and scalable start-ups in:
Life Sciences (biotech, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics)
We do not invest in healthcare providers or consultancy firms.
What is TRL?
TRL stands for ‘Technology Readiness Level’ and indicates a product or technology’s current phase of development. There are several ways to define TRL, but we use the EU system. Click here to take a look at our detailed TRL descriptions or download the document.
Do you also invest in established companies?
Yes, as long as they satisfy our criteria and terms & conditions.
Is it possible to submit a proposal by means other than your submissions portal, for example by email?
No, this is not possible. It is, however, possible to contact us by email with any questions you may have about our portal, or about our terms & conditions of funding.
