Experienced mentors and coaches help in getting products to market faster
On 20 August, a special selection committee will choose three life science start-ups from Latvia and three more from Estonia to participate in mentoring and coaching sessions. The competition and coaching sessions will be organised by the University of Tartu, an InnoStars RIS hub.
Estonian and Latvian entrepreneurs in life science and medicine are mostly all self-starters. Having access to experienced mentors and coaches can shorten the time to getting their products to market.
The selected companies will be matched with a dedicated coach and a team of two to three mentors and will go through a minimum of five business labs during a two-day event with their coach and mentors.
The aim is to bring together participants, entrepreneurs, mentors and coaches from the field of life sciences from both countries in order to create synergies, boost innovation, build a supportive business network to fast track business growth and facilitate cross-border technology transfer.
The first Business Lab will take place on 30 – 31 August in the Strand SPA & Conference Hotel in Pärnu, Estonia.
