International Market Exposure Program for life science and healthtech companies starting in August

Health Capital Helsinki and MassGlobal Partners, Massachusetts, are initiating an international Market Exposure Program (MEX) dedicated for life science and healthtech companies currently in start-up, development, or growth phase.

Now organized in Finland for the first time, the program will provide young companies guidance and support from a network of experts with connections in international life science and healthtech research, industry, and funding. Previous market exposure programs organized by MassGlobal have received excellent feedback from participating companies both in the US and in Europe.

The MEX program starts in August 2017 and is aimed at young companies from Helsinki region. The program will include seminars and practical training sessions in Finland and in the US, the first phase of the program being an international workshop (Boot Camp) organized in Biomedicum Helsinki, August 28th to 30th, 2017.

The 3-day Boot Camp will include seminars and lectures on relevant topics, coaching, practical training sessions, and one-to-one meetings. The Boot Camp is free of charge for participating companies, excluding travel and meal costs. For more information, see the 3-day program attached.

If you are interested in participating the program and/or the Boot Camp, please send an email to Markku Fagerlund (markku.fagerlund@healthcapitalhelsinki.fi) by Wednesday the 9th of August 2017. Be quick as the number of participating companies is limited!
