What do researchers need to know when commercializing their work into a venture-backed business? How do venture capitalists evaluate spinoffs, and what are the common pitfalls researchers make when leaping into the business world? And most importantly: how do you build a successful business once you're established?
Business Finland is proud to partner with Finnish VC firms for the 3rd annual Science Startup day to answer exactly that. We invite researchers across Finland to join us online for a day of workshops, networking with VCs, and a chance to pitch your project.
