Spin-off initiative

HIHR helped us enormously in improving our pitch.


Healthy Ideas Healthy Returns is the Benelux network to facilitate connections towards investors and industry partners. Together with the knowledge transfer professionals from your institute we will support you towards the pitch event.

Spin-off initiatives seeking (pre)seed venture funding and early phase projects, not ready for a pitch yet that are looking for feedback are both welcome to apply. The event will bring you input from experienced investors, companies and knowledge transfer professionals.

As a new initiative we offer one HIHR-alumni the floor to present their project once more. If your spin-offs has made significant progress and is seeking additional funding (pre-series A) you are welcome to apply to present your investment opportunity during an 8 minute pitch at our next event in Antwerp on May 31. In return we ask you to spent 5 minutes in addition to lessons learned in your start up journey. 

Please visit our event page for detailed information and conditions to apply for a pitch-nomination or Quickfire-session.
