Health VentureLab Weekend 20-22 November 2020 - Online edition

The next edition of the Health VentureLab Weekend will take place on 20-22 November , 2020, aiming to help aspiring entrepreneurs sound and test their ideas, develop business models and pitch to an experienced jury. It is organized in collaboration with VentureLab North.


The Health VentureLab Weekend is aimed at ideas in the health sector: healthy ageing, healthy living, biotech, medtech, solutions for COVID and so on.


This specific edition will take place online due to Covid-19 pandemic. However, it does not make it less exciting: same as entrepreneurs, we are adjusting to the new reality and trying to build the community and stimulate learning using the new instruments!

The VentureLab Weekend is all about building - building your competences and skills, your future dream-team, and, of course, your business. During the 3 days of the event you will work on turning your idea into a working business concept. We support you with 6 workshops and more than 6 hours of coaching by a group of experienced coaches. Furthermore, we organize an opportunity to test your idea and get input from a group of topic experts in such areas as IP management, Financing, Regulatory affairs and hospital procurement. On Friday and Saturday you will learn to pitch your ideas and get valuable feedback. Sunday evening the teams will do a final pitch for a panel of expert entrepreneurs, business developers and potential investors. Check the schedule for the more specific information.


To participate in this event, we ask an amount of 40 Euro. Costs for the platform, classes, coaches and prizes are covered by the RUG Centre of Entrepreneurship.

If you are our alumni (previous VL weekends, IMIM and IPIM participants) you can participate for free. If you take part in the research, you can save 20 Euros. Choose this option at the registration.


Places are distributed on the first come-first serve basis. Secure your place by registering via the Application form.


The winners will get diplomas and monetary prizes! First prize is 500 euros, Second is 250 euros and third is 100 euros.
