Startup Thrive

Monthly Webinar

As founders in the health sector, you face special challenges. To help you make better decisions and become more successful, we have created the free monthly webinar series “Health+ Start-Up Thrive” to cover a range of topics close to the hearts of all (aspiring) founders in this sector.

In February, we’ll have Arasch Bareksei (Founder, Investor) to give us an insight how to find and contact the right business angels for your start-up.
