Bio-Teams: From the laboratory to the market

Go-to-market strategy for breakthrough technologies emerging from Portuguese research labs

MIT Portugal Bioengineering PhD Students developed go-to-market strategies for breakthrough technologies emerging form Portuguese research labs. This year event will take place at the Museu Nacional de História Natural e da Ciência, Lisboa, and is open to the community, including invited business developers and investors.
