Boehringer Ingelheim Office Hours in Vienna on April 19, 2018

In collaboration with LISAvienna, Boehringer Ingelheim invites innovative biomedical start-ups and entrepreneurs to join the next BI Office Hours at the Vienna BioCenter. This is a great opportunity to benefit from BI’s science and business know-how. Apply now and find out more about 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.

Boehringer Ingelheim knows what it takes to be innovative and entrepreneurial. From the small factory in 1885 to today’s multi-billion-dollar global organization, we know how important it is to nurture and develop young science and technology businesses. Our personalized BI Office Hours initiative is designed to support the next generation of biotech start-ups and entrepreneurs.

BI Office Hours offers small 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 big pharma works and provides access to expertise, an industry perspective and feedback to emerging life-science businesses.
