FAST NOME: Denmark
The Nordic Mentor Network for Entrepreneurship (NOME) has joined forces with the California Life Sciences Institute (CLSI) to give Nordic Life Science startups access to potential partners and capital in one of the world’s most innovative regions. CLSI is partnering with NOME to provide FAST advisory commercialization services to six (6) emerging life science companies from the Nordic region. The 6-day program takes place in June 2019 and includes sessions on U.S. Markets and Funding Opportunities and the U.S. Regulatory and Reimbursement environments, as well as focused one-on-one meetings with advisory teams customized to meet the needs of the company with which they will work. The Danish companies will also present alongside our FAST cohort at the Spring 2019 FAST Closing Showcase on June 11 along with early -tage life science companies from Canada and the UK .
Inspired by the MIT Venture Mentoring Service, NOME’s vision is to develop and implement a best-in-class mentoring initiative that will propel startups in the Nordics to impactful global institutions building the region into a world leading life science hub.
