The program includes the business model development up to “investor readiness” through the elaboration of the specific needs in the life sciences and healthcare sector with individual and intensive support by medical experts in the following 4C’s:
Compared to other industries the survival of life science start-ups is particularly challenging due to long time periods and the capital requirement until market maturity. This is particularly due to the 4C’s:
With the help of extensive knowledge around the 4C, medical life science startups close the gap between innovation in general and successful medical innovation in particular.

What is the objective?
The participants can survey the life science-specific start-up topics of the 4C’s and thus plan ahead. The early strategic consideration of possible complications in the 4C’s creates the prerequisite for attaining the necessary maturity in the shortest possible time and for convincing investors. Corresponding barriers to shortening the time to market have been identified and structured in an individual project plan.
At the end of this program the participants will be familiar with the reimbursement options in the healthcare market. They will know how quality management systems and regulatory processes become a strategic concept and how they effectively lead to market approval of a medical product. Participants can decide whether and what type of clinical trials they need and how best to implement them. At the end of the program, they will know how to deal with data protection requirements and how to strategically protect and exploit the product idea.
