Life Science for Good

18:00-21.30

On the 13th March, members of the Industry Working Group are working with EthosBioUK CIC to host an event with a competitive pitching angle.

"A new movement of entrepreneurs is emerging that value social impact as highly as the bottom line. Can this profit with purpose business model be adopted by companies working in the life sciences sector?

We want to start the discussion and explore how Scotland can nurture socially conscious entrepreneurs with life science business ideas and invite the community to take part.

We also invite start-ups to present and promote their technology with a socially conscious angle. The winner will receive a £500 award."

The event will be held at the University of Edinburgh’s Business School Auditorium (29 Buccleuch Pl. Edinburgh EH8 9JS).
