Where can your entrepreneurial dream find a home? Who
can guide your complex and knowledge intensive biotechnology
Umeå Biotech Incubator, AB (UBI) is a unique first of its kind
"wet lab" incubator enterprise in the Swedish academic system.
UBI's first steps as an EU-supported joint university-regional
project on campus showed that directed focus, and selected business
expertise and aptitude allowed for a successful "spin-off venture"
creation mechanism. Eight of 15 incubator projects successfully
received investor funding!
Today, UBI is a key player in the innovation system for the
region; enabling and facilitating new venture creation. Located
within a commercial science park, UBI continues to provide funding
and to create a nurturing environment to foster your
"entrepreneurial" spirit. UBI brings biotech projects at various
stages from discovery-to-innovation early start, proof-of-principle
stage, and pre-seed projects to first round finance ventures
together under one roof. Experienced UBI internal and external
project advisors with a blend of science know-how coupled with
strong business acumen bring appropriate best practices for
commercialization success. UBI also offers help to address project
management and intellectual property issues. When your project
achieves its milestones, UBI can prepare you and your project for
"seed" financing and investor meetings. UBI is here for you. Your
company - your success is our legacy!
