About this Event

Boehringer Ingelheim Academy

Our Grass Roots activities are centered around developing a personal relationship with the companies we work with. And our Academy sessions provide an informal opportunity for early-stage life-science companies to network with other bio-entrepreneurs as well as hear from Boehringer Ingelheim business development, scientific and commercial leaders and some of our partners and key opinion leaders.

Panel Topic

Boehringer Ingelheim's BI Academy brings together business development, scientific and commercial leaders, together with some of our partners and key opinion leaders to discuss timely topics of interest in an interactive setting. BI Academy is an informal opportunity for early-stage life-science companies to network with other bio-entrepreneurs as well our BI colleagues. In this session we will discuss two topics:

• How does a pharmaceutical company contribute to an ecosystem?

• How to do a deal with Boehringer Ingelheim

It is often argued that ecosystems require the essential ingredients of world class academic institutions, access to capital (especially venture capital), key support services like lawyers and accountants, and big pharma and biotech. But what exactly does pharma do for an ecosystem, and what can it do? At BI we have taken grass roots approach to supporting ecosystems by addressing the needs of burgeoning life-science companies and taking a longer view towards these early-stage companies. Come join this panel discussion to see how pharma increasingly play a much different role in ecosystems and to voice what you want to see pharma companies do.
