For Advisors

SPARK supports academic and clinical inventors in health tech and life science space. It supports scientists, students and health care professionals by providing guidance on drug and health tech discovery and development, and building the understanding of business aspects related to their discoveries.

We welcome experienced Biotech, Pharma and Medtech experts, who will regularly attend our SPARK meetings to ask critical questions, provide advice and share their experience with the SPARK community.

Industry advisors can
• get involved in quarterly SPARK nights
• provide feedback on our current projects
• mentor specific projects on a one-on-one basis

For SPARKees we provide project specific advice and assistance in creating partnerships with industry, investors, and other relevant stakeholders. We help to test your hypothesis on major markets and build market understanding.
