AstraZeneca offers ”one-off” business mentoring sessions for selected startups that are aspiring business and collaboration with the pharma industry.
The application period for the mentoring program is open now and applicants all around Finland are welcome, reports Business Tampere.
A unique opportunity
“This is a unique opportunity and Tampere is the only location in Finland where AstraZeneca has chosen to be an official partner with incubator and to help grow local companies. This program will be one of the major supports that Business Tampere can offer to significantly help the health ecosystem grow to the next level,” says Vân Lê, Business Advisor at Business Tampere.
Tampere-based companies such as Braincare and Medicare Solutions have already signed up to the program.
“The connection between us can really help us both”
“To us the strengths the Tampere Region has in the mix of tech and healthcare is a valuable ecosystem to work with. Tampere and Finland are a natural part of the Nordic health technology and life science ecosystem and so is AstraZeneca. Furthermore, we have aligned focus areas, therefore the connection between us can really help us both,” says Per Hillertz, AstraZeneca M&A Business Relationship Manager.
