SME´s can get verification support

26 February, 2016

Sahlgrenska Science Park has been selected to provide verification support to companies, via SWElife (Vinnova). In 2016, we have the opportunity to support young life science companies with high growth potential and high knowledge level, in efforts to validate their business idea.

The funding may not exceed SEK 250 000 and will be used for verification efforts such as market analysis or investigations of regulatory and technological opportunities and challenges. The goal is to reduce the risks at an early stage to encourage more viable companies evolve. Support for initial validation of the commercial potential may strengthen small life science companies’ applications to larger programs from SWElife, VINNOVA and the EU.

SWElife and VINNOVA invited established life science incubators, which does not give dividends to their owners, to apply for funds to promote the development and value creation in the new knowledge-intensive life science companies with high growth potential. The incubator should be prepared to provide support to companies with potential regardless of where in Sweden they come from (companies do not need to be or become affiliated to the incubator).
