Panel Discussions on the occasion of 25th anniversary of Plattform Life Sciences

In yesterday's panel discussion on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Plattform Life Sciences, I discussed with the panelists Britta Thiele-Klapproth (Swiss Business Hub Germany) Matthias Kromayer (MIG Capital), Anne Burger (Catalym + Seamless Therapeutics) and a very lively audience from the IZB and BioM network on questions such as:_

What makes a strong location (or region?) for startups and SME's? How can life science regions further improve to fuel innovation and start-up dynamics?

How can founders find the right funding opportunities?

Several successful translational lighthouses have been launched in the BioRN Life Science Cluster Rhine-Neckar ecosystem:

  • BioLabs Heidelberg develops its strength in and around Heidelberg in the holistic support for founders

  • Public-private partnership concepts, such as beLab 2122 with Evotec support researchers in the early stages of drug discovery development

  • The new LBank Inno Growth BW Fund tripling private investments into BW startups

This is what makes the life science ecosystem Rhine-Neckar attractive and they may serve as inspiration for other regions.

Let’s join forces and help Germany catch up with leading nations in biotech!
