An interactive meeting to get insights, advice and examples to get research income through entrepreneurship or start up your own company.

RISE & TheNextWomen offer the unique possibility to participate in the free Science Stories. Group sessions with ambitious scientists, entrepreneurs, professionals, and experts. Small groups get the opportunity to ask questions and gain advice, from each other and experienced entrepreneurs. TheNextWomen invites experienced entrepreneurs to each session to support participants with advice and contacts.

Do you have an entrepreneurial idea? Or do want to share a business issue? Then select 'yes' when you register for your seat and we will let you know as soon as possible if you have been selected to get on the spot advice and help. TheNextWomen invites experienced entrepreneurs to each session to support participants with advice and contacts.

For Whom

This workshop is for women in the beta sciences. We specifically invite scientists, medical staff and interns and women working in the Bioscience park companies. Also young talent and medical interns, PhD’s and post-docs who have an entrepreneurial idea or are interested in entrepreneurship in general are very welcome.
