, Stiftung Charité, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, and Max Delbrück Center hosted the 6th “Charité Entrepreneurship Summit” at Kaiserin Friedrich-Haus
Since its successful launch in 2007, the Charité Entrepreneurship Summit has become an international forum for participants and speakers from medicine, the life sciences, entrepreneurship, venture capital, tech transfer, and related fields.
Keynotes, panels, and working groups on our Hot Topic “Mobile Health” showed how mobile technology is reshaping healthcare. In addition, three Charité Windows (Alzheimer’s Disease, Geriatric Medicine, Oncology) highlighted successful models of cooperation between academia, care providers, policy makers, and industry to find solutions for the major problems of tomorrow’s medicine. Interactive working groups on topics such as ‘Intellectual Property’, ‘Technology Commercialization’, and ‘Sources of Early Financing’, as well as on ‘Building the Winning Team’, ‘Achieving Success through Failure’, and “What’s Wrong with Your Pitch” provided the opportunity to learn from successful founders, CEOs, investors, and other experts. For researchers in the life sciences, physician scientists with business ideas, business graduates (MBAs), and experienced entrepreneurs looking for business ideas we offered the module Business Speed Dating.
