Jointly organized by Radboudumc, Radboud University, Briskr and Oost NL, the Investment Day is a matchmaking event for investors, entrepreneurs and top researchers in the life sciences & health domain. It is a unique opportunity to gain new business contacts and talk about the potential societal value of research with industry experts.

Connecting people

Our main goal for the event is to enable attendees to connect with each other. For this purpose, the event utilizes a matchmaking platform for setting up 1-to-1 meetings and offers several parallel sessions from top researchers, promising startups and investors. This will allow participants to pick & mix presentations to their liking and reserve time for targeted 1-to-1 meetings in between and during the program.

Poster competition

The event also includes a poster competition for research and early-stage development in life sciences & health with great potential for future impact. Prior to the event, researchers within Radboudumc and Radboud University have submitted abstracts for the competition, with a focus on how to translate the research to products & services, entrepreneurship and the market. The most promising entries will be displayed on posters during the Investment Day.

Product displays

We have invited several entrepreneurs to display their innovations in the hall, for additional inspiration during the breaks.

Practical information

The Investment Day will take place at the Radboudumc Experience Center from 13.00h to 17.30, with optional dinner and networking afterwards. The previous editions led to several new investments for start-ups who visited the event, and lasting contacts! To ensure a good balance between the three target audiences, the event is invite only.
