Talent Accelerator Programme for BioBusiness

Talent Accelerator Programme for BioBusiness

TAP into your full BioBusiness potential!

You have a profound scientific background in Life Sciences, but in recent years you have transitioned to a more commercial role in which you are responsible for research commercialization, technology transfer, business development or new business creation.

To be successful in this current role, you have to tap into a different skillset, gain other insights and expand your business network. With TAP BioBusiness you will accelerate your professional development as a biobusiness professional. 

For whom?

TAP BioBusiness is developed for junior BioBusiness professionals working in the Life Sciences & Health sector in the Netherlands or Belgium. Typically the participants of TAP BioBusiness have one of the following roles:

  • Business Development
  • Technology Transfer
  • Venture Capital
  • Start-up founder
  • Consultant

Preferably you have less than 4-5 years of experience in a commercial role and you have the ambition to further develop yourself into a leadership role in BioBusiness.

Why Participate?

TAP BioBusiness will help you to develop quickly in your commercial role in Life Sciences. Whether you are a Business Developer in a biotech/pharma/CMO/CRO, a tech transfer officer at a research institute, financial analyst at a VC or a starting entrepreneur, through this program you will become more effective and productive in your role at an earlier stage, benefiting both your own career and your organization.

In a small-scale setting you will learn from experienced BioBusiness executives, experts and trainers but also from the successes and mistakes of your peers. The intensive programme offers knowledge and insights, inspiring experience stories, interactive feedback sessions, practical case studies and mentoring by seasoned BioBusiness executives with successful track records. The participants will receive advice and feedback regarding the issues they face at work and how to handle these challenges, projects and business relations. The size of the group is deliberately kept small to ensure optimal interaction.

After the TAP BioBusiness training programme, the participants will not only have increased their knowledge and insights, enhanced their personal soft skills, but have also expanded their network with a diverse mix of BioBusiness professionals from the Netherlands and Belgium, coming in handy in their line of job.
