In August, the Biodesign Finland team participated the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship Bootcamp at UC Berkeley, as part of the Aalto University Center for Entrepreneurship’s pilot to launch a similar bootcamp in Finland. The 5-day bootcamp offered intensive learning about new venture creation, how to launch your idea, and how to take new technology to market. During the program, participants attended sessions that weaved together lectures and interactive exercises, received one-on-one mentoring from UC Berkeley faculty and industry experts, and learned in a collaborative environment.
For the Biodesign Finland team, the bootcamp experience was an amazing opportunity to develop their pitching skills, to receive feedback and valuable advice from experts and investors, and to network with like-minded professionals from all over the world. As part of the program, the team’s progress will be followed up during the autumn by the mentors from Berkeley.
