APPLY NOW for a fully funded, specialist training for you and your business from BioBase4SME, worth €7000 . Join other new, innovative and ambitious companies for an intensive, week-long course that will give you the tools you need to commercialise your idea and grow your company.

What previous Biocamp participants have said:

‘Best I have experienced in my career.’

‘What really stood out for me was, the one-to-one mentor meetings, the non-executive director talk & the investor pitch training.’

‘I now have a plan on how to go ahead, lots of new contacts to visit, reassurance I’m on the right track and confidence.’

Each session of the training programme will start with a lecture from an expert in a key aspect of business
growth, followed by a group exercise mediated by an experienced facilitator. You will then apply the learning
