GBS visits GENEUS
March 14th, 2019
Our Geneva Campus students paid a visit to GENEUS, the largest start-up incubator in Geneva. GENEUS is a collaborative co-working space for life science entrepreneurs, helping them to develop full potential of their research, discoveries and ideas. Founded in 2016, GENEUS is a partner of Switzerland’s leading innovation incubators like fongit, Eclosion, and many others.
After a presentation by GENEUS management team discussing new innovations in Switzerland, the growing benefits of incubators, opportunities of funding students projects, among other topics, GBS students were privileged to meet some of the leading entrepreneurs in this business, Omar Bawa, Founder of Goodwall, and Arthur Germain, Founder of Onedoc. Our students also enjoyed playing the marshmallow challenge, in which they tested their team work and innovative spirit.
GENEUS is currently holding different meet ups including REACH2020 (Responsive Engagement of the Elderly promoting Activity and Customized Healthcare), Richard Polifka (CERN) (Platform linking Science to business) and Mabsense (Various testing solutions for Pharma) to help life science entrepreneurs collaborate and connect. In addition, GENEUS is willing to support business ideas and turn them into companies. Ventures are initiated at Geneus for a period of up to 12 months. During this period entrepreneurs are supported in initiating, evaluating, and evolving the project until it is mature for incubation at Eclosion, EPFL Innovation Park, or Fongit.
