MEET JASPER EVERS AT #KFG2018
Jasper Evers will be presenting a satellite workshop, together with David Haex:
"Pitfalls and Opportunities in the US for the EU Life Sciences companies"
Europe and Belgium in particular has a lot to offer in terms of life sciences technology. However, in order to get this technology to patients on a global scale, life sciences companies need to be able to scale-up in terms of speed/financing/partnerships and market access. Currently US companies have the advantages of a large home market and abundance of available venture capital. Therefore it can make sense for EU companies to cross the atlantic and go to the US to create equal opportunities. David and Jasper will speak on what it takes to go there, pitfalls and opportunities from a strategic, financial and legal perspective.
