The Brain Forum Conference

Lausanne, Switzerland

“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.
