LISAvienna Event Tip: Boehringer Ingelheim Office Hours

In collaboration with LISAvienna, IMP and the Vienna BioCenter, Boehringer Ingelheim invites the biomedical community to join personalized virtual one-on-one consulting sessions on May 31, 2022. Apply as soon as possible.

BI Office Hours offers life science companies and entrepreneurs individual attention in an informal ‘office hours’ atmosphere. Designed as a consultative ‘round table’ meeting, this pioneering mentoring initiative ‘lifts the lid’ on how a big pharma company works and it provides access to expertise, an industry perspective and feedback to emerging life-science businesses.

While deliberately not being a partnering meeting, BI Office Hours gives you direct access to BI’s management and know-how (science and business) to find out what are the critical factors a pharma partner is looking for in terms of, for example, therapeutic concept validation, ‘key’ experiments, therapeutic modalities (small molecules, antibodies, others), animal models, patient selection biomarkers, clinical development, landscape positioning, and reimbursement considerations.  For more information, please see our website.

We would like to invite you to apply for the next BI Office Hours to be held as an online meeting on May 31st 2022, 09:00 - 17:00.

In preparation for our discussion please kindly provide the BI Team with:

  • An executive summary and/or,
  • A short presentation (no more than 10 slides) outlining your technology, main features, problems it solves and any supportive scientific data
  • Please include 5 key questions you would like to have answered during our brainstorming session

All information submitted must be non-confidential and provided four weeks in advance of the event.  We meet with only 5-6 companies in a day, with the intent of having a one-on-one informal conversation.  Since starting this program Boehringer Ingelheim has coached > 300 companies (in USA, China, UK, Germany, Austria and France), all with very positive feedback.

Please let us know if you are interested in participating, we will be happy to meet you.
