Science meets Business' main way of creating the above mentioned interaction is the monthly Science meets Business Cafe. This cafe is organised every second Thursday of the month in the Foyer of BioPartner 1 and gives the floor to three speakers from in and around Leiden to speak about their science based company or start-up, business models and research.
Science meets Business is a not-for-profit institute and is run a 100% by volunteers. The team consists of Scientists, (PhD-)Students and Entrepreneurs from Leiden. The events and the foundation are funded by the Leiden municipality, Biopartner and the members of the Club of Science meets Business.
The Science meets Business Foundation is part of the entrepreneurial community of PLNT Leiden. Due to the independent character of the Foundation, Science meets Business is not bound to one location and organizes events all over Leiden.
Since Science meets Business receives public funding and donations, and since we carry the status 'ANBI', we publish our annual reports and financial statements every year. Feel free to ask us about anything we do or did anytime.
