DemoDay: Who to watch and why?

On May 27, 2020, BII’s virtual DemoDay will be broadcasted from a professional tv-studio to the life science ecosystem in Denmark and abroad. If you haven’t reserved your ticket, click here.

For the past few months, the six start-ups from the Business Acceleration Academy have been working on developing a solid, initial business plan that will help them bring their solutions to the market. In collaboration with the BII business development team and subject matter experts, the teams have developed tremendously since the beginning and right now, they are fine-tuning their pitches for DemoDay.

All teams have an anchor in the BII team who has worked closely with them and followed their progress. We asked them who to watch on DemoDay and why.
