BioRiver Boost! 2021 - the winners are


BioRiver Boost! Award for the best Life Science Start-up

A groundbreaking idea and technical know-how are not yet a guarantee for the success of a start-up company. Direct contact with decision-makers and the shortest possible routes to market leaders are important in order to successfully place a new product or a sensational technology on the market.

For the 8th time, young companies and start-up projects from biotechnology and life science will present their technologies and answer the questions of the expert jury.

BioRiver Boost! 2021 expects eight selected start-up projects from Germany and neighbouring EU countries.

This year the jury consists of experts and managers from Bayer, Lonza, MiltenyiBiotec, QIAGEN, Johnson&Johnson, UCB, HTGF, NRW.Bank and Lead Discovery Center chaired by Dr. Boris Stoffel, Miltenyi Biotec.

The event:

BioRiver Boost! begins with two pitch sessions by the start-ups in front of the jury and the audience.

In the reverse pitch session, participants will hear industry presentations. Companies such as Qiagen, Evotec, Scientific Bioprocessing, Cevec Pharmaceuticals as well as Bayer and Miltenyi Biotec will talk about their innovation fields and discuss ideas.

The final award ceremony honours the start-up whose business and presentation are outstanding in terms of innovative strength and future economic success.

Discussions can take place on site as well as in the Zoom conference, and there will be enough time during the breaks for networking with known and new colleagues.

Please note: Changes to the Corona regulation can lead to a further restriction of the number of participants on site or, in the worst case, to a cancellation of the face-to-face event. In this case, the event will only take place online.
