Industry meeting

Entrepreneurship in bioinformatics


April 5, 13:15 - 14:30 - Room Amerika


On April 5th the Bioinformatics Industrial User Platform organises an inspiring industry session at the BioSB 2017.

This year's topic will be 'Entrepreneurship in bioinformatics' and we invited three managers of bioinformatics companies to present about the success of their company. 


  • The Hyve - Harry van Haaften
  • Euretos - Arie Baak
  • Edgeleap - Marijana Radonjic

These three companies started as bioinformatics start-ups and have grown into successful companies. We would like to hear from these speakers the do's and dont's to be a successful start-up (and stay successful) in bioinformatics.

After their presentations an interactive panel discussion is planned.

This session could be especially interesting and inspriging for upcoming talent (like PhD students) who are thinking of starting their own company.
