FAQ’s

Do I have to attend in person?

No, this year due to the pandemic, we will launch the programme virtually, including the networking.

Do I have to attend all the events?

Yes. Whilst the programme is offered at no charge, it takes a lot of time to organise and curate the programme. Attendance is monitored during each event and failing to attend a minimum of 80% results in exclusion from the demo day.

Do you only accept data-driven start-ups with a focus on drug discovery/genomics?
