Finnish industry organisations in the Life Science field have collaboratively created an internet based mentoring service for start-up companies, fledgling entrepreneurs and researchers interested in commercialising their inventions. The purpose of the service is to share the knowledge of experienced people with beginners and support their business development. The service is offered free of charge.
Mentoring means sharing information and experience with those who are in need of it. There are a number of Finnish mentoring services already in operation, but none of them specialises in the Life Science sector.
Finnish industry organisations Pharmaceutical Industry Finland, Healthtech Finland and Finnish Bioindustries decided together with other actors such as Helsinki Innovation Service, Life Science Accelerator/Turku Business Region and IBC Finland to produce a Life Science focused mentoring service, Life Science Mentors.
