SmB Cafe March 2018

Thursday the 8th

On the 8th of March we are back with three speakers on the subject of Science and Business. This month three companies will tell you everything there is to know about setting up and growing a Science Based Business. The companies are in different stages of development and are active in different scientific fields.



Sending a rover to the moon

Stellar Space Industries

Stellar Space Industries is a start-up that is located at the Bio Science Park in Leiden, founded by a group of mechanical and aerospace engineers. Stellar Space Industries closely follows the developments with respect to the utilization of in-situ resources in current space operations, in order to detect technological black holes in the space exploration industry. By strengthening our production capability for the fabrication of space technology and providing engineering services for the high-tech industry, we finance our research into the future exploration of the universe. 


Solving the insoluble


SeraNovo is a pharmaceutical start-up company founded by Niall and Bastiaan, located with both lab and office in Leiden. With a fundamentally new approach to drug formulation, they aim to increase the success rate in late pre-clinical drug development by improving the solubility. A crucial first step to make more cures available to the patients and reduce development costs.


Starting business from science


Amylon Therapeutics targets CNS disorders through an ultra-genetics approach, focusing on rare genetic disorders that can serve as a possible gateway to more frequently occurring indications. The anti-amyloid technology of Amylon allows a focus on different disorders, with a primary focus on HCHWA-D and CAA. Amylon is led by founder Thomas de Vlaam, complemented by a scientific board of experienced scientists and biotech veterans. As a spin-off from the NASDAQ traded ProQR Therapeutics, Amylon enjoys a wealth of knowledge and experience through its shareholders and network.
