Boston / Basel / India Summit - Global Excellence in Life Science Entrepreneurship

Switzerland is a global leader in innovation, but seems to be lagging behind in terms of entrepreneurship. We believe that an entrepreneurial culture, skills and a global mindset, whether in a startup, at a company, in academia or elsewhere in society, are crucial prerequisites to a competitive innovation ecosystem.

So how can we support entrepreneurs better, what impact do they have and how can we build up global entrepreneurship networks of support? Together we'll try to figure this out.

When: 19.11.2019,  16:00 - 20:00
Where: Roche Turm (Bau 1), Grenzacherstrasse 124, 4070 Basel
