New knowledge. New people
Three events are in the pipeline so far. They are themed around pitching for investments, testing healthcare solutions and building teams. All future events should give prospective entrepreneurs a chance to hear personal stories from founders, learn about free services for start-ups and to meet collaborators, co-founders and possibly even investors and employees. Future events will be posted to the Copenhagen Science City event list and promoted on the districts’ LinkedIn profile
Inspiration for start-ups and entrepreneurs
Seven start-up communities and three research- and education-institutions makes the innovation district rich in potential venues for the “Brew Your Own”-events. Apart from providing inspiration for start-up companies and motivation to start up a business, the organizers hope to make the event series a “Tour de Chambre” of the many collaborators and facilities in Copenhagen Science City.
Events should lead to new solutions
With the new event series, Biopeople and Copenhagen Science City hope to create a forum where university researchers, start-up stars and bright young students can meet, mingle, improve their network and refine their entrepreneurial abilities. Ideally, the new networks should lead to new solutions within diagnostics, therapeutics and rehabilitation.
