For informal talks, (pre) Seed and Series A pitching

The next pitch edition will take place in Rotterdam on November 22, 2023 with Quickfire sessions scheduled the week before. We happily welcome you in the Rotterdam Science Tower to connect with the newest academic Health Spin-offs from the Benelux.

  • Start ups seeking (pre-)Seed funding are invited to apply for a pitch in the morning sessions
  • Scale ups seeking funding from Series A to pre-IPO are welcome to apply for the afternoon pitches.
  • Early stage ideas or venture proposals not pitch ready yet are warmly invited to register for an online Quickfire session, scheduled the week prior to the pitch event.
  • We also invite alumni projects, seeking additional funding in ‘pre-series A’-stage to apply once more. One project will be selected to present their case, including a 5 minutes address to ‘lessons learned in their Start-up Journey’
In addition to the pitches, we introduce a sneak view on ‘The future of...’. Hereto we’re seeking top researchers who can enlighten us on the future of oncology, immune therapy, CRISPR-Cas or any other topic of interest to both our investors, industry partners and KTO community. Suggestions for researchers are very welcome at
Deadline for submitting your project for HIHR-13 is September 29, noon.
