How do I start a science-based business? What unexpected obstacles need to be considered before founding a company? These and other questions were answered by Dr. Tobias Gräwert, managing director of the EMBL spin-off BIOSAXS GmbH, during the PIER Innovation Lunch Talk “Starting a Company in the Life Sciences” on Thursday, 19 April 2018. During a get-together after the talk, participants had the opportunity to discuss further questions with the speaker and meet like-minded fellow researchers.

The next PIER Innovation Lunch Talk "Business Model Canvas, Business Plan and Pitch" will take place on Thursday, 24 May 2018, 12 noon - 1:30 p.m. at Campus Bahrenfeld, CFEL, seminar room 1.
