HIHR - Healthy Ideas Healthy Returns

Our next live pitch edition will take place in Antwerp on May 15, 2024 with online Quickfire sessions scheduled May 6-9. We happily welcome you to Antwerp to connect with the newest academic Health Spin-offs from the Benelux.

(Future) academic spin off projects or established ventures in the human health are warmly invited to join our next edition.

  • selected Start ups seeking (pre-)Seed funding will present their proposition during the life pitch event. 
  • one or two HIHR alumni projects, seeking additional funding in ‘pre-series A’-stage to present their case, including a 5 minutes address to ‘lessons learned in their Start-up Journey’
  • Early stage ideas or venture proposals not pitch ready yet look forward to receiving feedback during online Quickfire sessions. These 45 minute online sessions will take place from Monday May 6 till Thursday May 9, at 9am, 12am or 5pm.

HIHR offers a platform for researchers to connect in an informal setting with agents in the life sciences industry. Getting feedback from these experts could help you understand the potential of your technology. The HIHR Quickfire sessions and pitch-events are a great chance to bridge the gap from early academic innovations to real-world impact.
