From bench to business – Ideas of young startup founders

Whether it’s in the life sciences, IT, humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences, startups take research and carry it from the lab or library out into the world! While some projects, such as medicine or alternative energy, lend themselves to obvious applications, others require more visionary thinking to get them to market.

The inaugural GAIN Young Innovators Showcase features the ideas of young startup founders who made the leap from bench to business. In a presentation, they will introduce their research-based innovation and talk about the career paths that lead them to become entrepreneurs. This event is designed to inspire the next generation of thought leaders from all parts of the scientific spectrum to follow their inspiration and adopt the entrepreneurial mindset in their own career paths.

The GAIN Young Innovators Showcase is supported by the German Center for Research and Innovation (DWIH) New York and the German Accelerator Silicon Valley.
