Umeå Biotech Incubator is one of Europe’s top biotech incubators. For 20 years we have provided full-service support for innovators in Sweden who are eager to test and verify their business ideas within the Life science field.
In the International Incubator Program we’ve picked out one of the key benefits of our incubator program and are now offering it to international individuals and companies as a stand-alone, web-based workshop/program.

Flexibility is Key
Unlike traditional programs with fixed starting times, our International Incubator Program is designed to accommodate your timeline. Whenever you’re ready to embark on your journey of innovation and insight, this program awaits.

Upon expressing your interest, we’ll initiate a dialogue to delve into your startup’s particulars. This preliminary conversation ensures alignment between your objectives and the program’s offerings. Subsequently, you’ll proceed to formal application, and upon acceptance, the program commences. Invoicing is processed at the program’s outset.

Who’s It For?
This is an evaluation/pre-incubation course. We are looking for those who have identified a problem and a solution within the Life science field. You are in the early product/innovation development stage. You are a non-Swedish startup. You don’t have to have a patent application or a company. We will help you verify the problem and analyze the market’s needs.

What is in the program?
The program provides valuable support in a group and one-on-one setting, expert discussions and feedback, personalized coaching, and own work. Each startup gets access to a personal coach that provides support throughout the program. Included is a chance to network and interact with peers and experts as well as open the doors to Sweden, one of the top innovation countries in Europe.

Why and how do we do this? 
It is a tricky path from an idea to the Life science market. Many new ideas fail because they have not identified the needs of the customers and the market. To succeed, you need to ask the right questions in the right way. At UBI we are experts at this. Read more here.

What’s Included:

  • Training in a methodology to validate business concepts.
  • Personalized consultations with seasoned life sciences business mentors.
  • A strategic roadmap with a financial framework until the subsequent development phase.
  • Constructive critique of your pitch by a diverse panel within a value-creating-forum setting.

Can Teams Participate?
Absolutely. The program’s fee applies per startup, not per individual. However, team members from the same startup are encouraged to attend the same coaching sessions.

The cost for participation is 5,000 Euros. Invoicing is initiated at the program’s inception.

Your Commitment
Active engagement in mentoring sessions, allocating time for peer feedback, and consistent participation.
