Sign up to the next Campus Biotech Innovation park workshop, organised by Innovation Initiator Geneus, on Thursday May 27th, from 9-10am!
The workshop will be about “The Rollercoaster Ride of Entrepreneurship- a Journey to Life Sciences innovation."
Learn about the few common mistakes start-ups face while they are operating that might lead to complicated times and eventually to failures as a learning lesson. Support on this topic will be explained through personal experience in a start-up and using a real case example.
