“The Brain Forum” connects different players in neuroscience to advance their understanding of how the brain works and to accelerate the application of that understanding to human needs. Start-ups will have the opportunity to present their projects to the audience and to win an innovation award.
Early stage start-ups, working in the field of neuroscience, have the opportunity to join the competition of the conference. 18 start-ups will be selected by the jury to give a five-minute public presentation in front of decision-makers from business, politics, healthcare, science, technology and the media.
The selected start-ups will be invited to participate in a one-day workshop before the conference (25 May 2016) in which experienced entrepreneurs coach them on a sales pitch. On May 26, 2016 the best start-ups will give a public presentation and will be judged by venture capitalists and the audience. The winner will be revealed on the last day of conference.
