For how many years did you work with the incubator team?
“I had contact with UBI for more than 10 years.”
What happened to your idea in the end?
“The hypothesis still holds today, and three pharmaceutical companies have been set up.” Two companies have come as far as phase II clinical trials and they have a high probability of resulting in a finalised pharmaceutical product.”
What did you most appreciate about the incubator environment?
“What I appreciated most was the support and advice from the coaches and the funding during the initial phase.”
What learnings have you taken with you from your journey in the incubator?
“That’s it’s difficult and almost impossible to get hold of development funds.”
What would you say to others wanting to utilise a research idea?
“Don’t expect to get anything more than work out of your project.”
