If you value our events and platform, please consider to support us on a more structural base. HIHR does not receive any subsidy nor state funding and is fully relying on the support of our stakeholders, both in kind as well as financially. Your support will enable us to further build a sustainable platform and maintain our small scale, informal focus.

By contributing to the HIHR platform you will:

  • on the one hand get easy access to plans of new spin-off initiatives that fit your investment portfolio and meet the teams behind them;
  • on the other hand strengthen the HIHR spin-off-VC platform by providing input to young teams that are eager to learn from your expertise;
  • and support Healthcare innovators in the Benelux

Please contact claar-els@hihr.eu for further information and support.

The HIHR offer

Healthy Ideas, Healthy Returns (HIHR) aims to bring the academic biotech ecosystem in the Benelux to a higher level, with a focus on company creation/financing.

Our mission is threefold:

  • for researchers: Provide a unique platform for academic spin-off opportunities in life sciences to get feedback, access to external expertise and financing.
  • for investors/corporates: provide insight into science-based innovations and Benelux venture deal-flow in one single event.
  • networking: build an active network of entrepreneurs, investors and academic tech transfer and share information and contacts

HIHR unites all major biomedical research organizations in the Benelux  and organizes events to bring together innovation providers (PROs), drivers (investors, Health accelerators, entrepreneurs) and ‘uptakers’ (Corporates).

We organise on a yearly base:
– two live pitch events (second half May en mid November) presenting well-rounded, early stage investment propositions to venture capital investors and networking opportunities, either or not in combination with partner organisations.
– twice a year online Quickfire sessions, to provide constructive feedback and access to relevant contacts for business initiatives that are still in the building phase. Investors and entrepreneurs benefit from early access to ideas under development and (future) deal flow.
– quarterly online free lunch webinars

All events remain ‘invitation-only’.
