SmB Cafe September 2019

Thursday the 12th

After the summer months we'll be back with our fall season of SmB Cafe's, of course every second Thursday of the month! This time: Nanotech, BaaS and MedTech. This special session we will be welcoming the EIT Health teams!



Nanotech for RNA therapeutics

Michiel Lodder (CEO)

"20Med Therapeutics is a Dutch biotechnology company applying innovative nanotechnology for the development of RNA therapeutics. Our non-viral delivery platform is based on bioresponsive polymers specifically designed for the efficient intracellular delivery of oligonucleotides. 20Med Nanoparticles are widely applicable for the delivery of oligonucleotide based therapeutics using various routes of administration."


Bioscience as a service

"HALIX combines ‘single point of contact’ project management with proven and sound processes and procedures. From development to pre-clinical through commercialization, we provide high quality and flexible CDMO services to biopharmaceutical partners, enabling you to progress through clinical phases in order to enter and supply your markets with the most efficient use of resources."


MedTech Pitches & Feedback session

EIT Health teams

"On September 2 ten promising medtech startups from all over Europe started the fourth edition of EIT Health Validation Lab. EIT Health Validation Lab is a unique two month pressure cooker that allows aspiring entrepreneurs from all over Europe to discover the business potential of their MedTech ideas. 

EIT Health Validation Lab is set up by EIT Health, together with YES!Delft and with the support of the LUMC, PLNT and SmB in Leiden.  EIT Health is one of the largest healthcare initiatives worldwide and promotes entrepreneurship and innovates in healthy living and active ageing. The aim: improve quality of life and healthcare across Europe!"

Today, the teams will be giving their elevator pitches and are looking for constructive feedback and a network. Will you challenge and/or help them?


Let us know if you'll be there!
