EVA: research › business idea › commercialization
When we select companies, we partner with them right from the start. We help to commercialize Life Sciences projects, technology and innovative ideas with seed money an bridge the so-called “valley of death”. We actively support the investigation of intellectual property and the legal framework, provide business advice, including market research, and support the formal company set-up.
We do not provide venture capital, but we actively support the search for additional investors. We take up shares from companies we select, or give convertible loans in special cases. Repayment occurs when the company is sold or goes public. Detailed terms are individually aligned with our start-ups’ business and financial plans.
Our Board of Directors and Scientific Advisory Board bring together experts with profound knowledge in Life Sciences and Finance. For start-ups we choose to support, this well-established network provides a source of highly professional Board members.
