Here's Where We've Already Been!​

Leading national or international scientific institutions, world-renowned hospitals, research-intensive and innovative enterprises, you can find it all in Heidelberg. Therefore, we decided to stay on our home turf, Germany, and headed to Heidelberg for this one! There we sat down with:

  • Friedrich von Bohlen – CEO & Founder of Molecular Health
  • Andreas Schmidt – Chief Executive Officer at Proteona

London is one of the most vivid cities in terms of biotechnological and pharmaceutical research, development and production. We liked it so much last year we had to make another stop! There we sat down with:

  • Ryan Cawood – CEO of Oxford Genetics
  • Tim Haines – Managing Partner at Abingworth

We wanted to get a little spoiled so we had to stop off in Basel. Basel is home to some really big biotech and pharma companies and it’s consequently a cornerstone of the excellence Switzerland has demonstrated in the industry. As a key hotspot in the BioValley cluster as well, it’s no wonder big names such as BaseLaunch, Cellestia or NBE-Therapeutics can be found there. We sat down with:

  • Ulf Grawunder – CEO of NBE-Therapeutics
  • Chandra Leo – Partner at HBM Partners

We were missing good cheese so we had to stop off in Paris. Paris is also the biggest biotech cluster in Europe with awesome companies such as DBV Technologies, Cellectis, Enterome & Eligo Biosciences. We sat down with:

  • Christine Placet, CEO of Horama
  • Emmanuel Petiot, CEO of Deinove
