For the second year, Bioeconomy Corporation is organising Bio Pitching for innovative researchers from local universities with commercial ready projects. The researchers will make a five (5) minutes marketing pitch to strategically selected funders, distributors, joint venture partners and other interested parties/agencies for uptake (by way of funding or distributing agent or JV partnership, etc.) of their commercial-ready projects. There will be ten (10) presentations showcasing biobased projects in agriculture, healthcare and industrial biotechnology. This is also a platform for companies to scout for potential commercial ready projects to partner with to add value of expand their business.
The pitching session provide an opportunity for more companies and interested parties/ agencies to acquire-value added products, services and technologies developed by local researchers which can have a huge impact on the growth and productivity of the nation. This is to promote and encourage uptake of research output by the industry. There will be follow-up meetings between researchers and prospective industry players for the establishment of start-up companies or joint ventures.
