The European Health Catapult Biotech semi-final, organised by TU Delft and hosted by Biotech Campus Delft and DSM, involved 13 exceptional biotech start-ups, who participated in a two-day intensive training aimed at strengthening their value proposition pitching skills. After their training, the start-ups pitched before a jury for the competition, which coincided with the EIT Health Investor Forum. All of the competing start-ups, who were seeking a total of €112 million in future investment, also had an opportunity to network and establish further connections with investors and health industry representatives.
