HIHR helped us enormously in improving our pitch.
At HIHR 2019 we had the opportunity as an academic team to pitch our spin-off project to a group of investors. After teaming up with an experienced entrepreneur and thorough due diligence, we successfully secured funding from some of those investors.
Great opportunity to get honest feedback from a great panel of experts and investors, even for projects in a rather early stage (QF Sessions).
As an early stage investor, HIHR is a unique opportunity to meet entrepreneurs in life sciences that are motivated to bring their work to patients. In addition, the meeting clearly has an objective to have benefits for all involved. I learned a lot from both presenters as well as questions from the audience.
