Description

IMAGINE IF! is a fantastic opportunity to accelerate a scientific idea towards a business and unlike other competitions, it is the first truly global competition for healthcare science ventures.

On December 12th we had announced the Swiss 10 finalists who entered the accelerator program. Since then, they have been working with their mentors to go forward with their project. On February 21st they will prove themselves with their first IMAGINE IF! pitching competition at the Swiss Local Finals. The Top 10 will compete to win:

  • 3500CHF in diluted-cash to the best startup
  • desk space in San Francisco by Swissnex
  • lab space at the Biopole by Startlab
  • access to the Global IMAGINE IF! Finals in London for the best biotech startup

Join us at EPFL on Thursday 21st Februrary to discover these amazing projects. You will also be able to vote for your favorite pitch and help them win the Audience prize.

Warming up before the pitching, Marc Gruber, Vice President for Innovation at EPFL, will be the keynote speaker on startup development for innovation. Lunaphore and a startup in the cleantech field (TBC) will be joining us as well to present their work and the journey that brought them to it.
