Smile Incubator – enabling life science innovation
In order to facilitate research, innovation and business development within the field of life science, Medicon Village takes part in initiatives and collaboration with partners as a prerequisite for growth and added value. One of our most important partners since our founding is SmiLe Incubator.
SmiLe Incubator is a non-profit business incubator for life science startups looking to develop next-generation healthcare and life science technologies.
This is realized by offering life science entrepreneurs advanced coaching programs, well-equipped labs with state-of-the art instruments, a large international network of industry partners and investors, and a community of world-class life science innovators.
SmiLe Incubator do not take equity in the companies they support. Working on a no-equity, non-profit basis enables them to build a neutral platform for launching health innovation into the world.
Promoting Sustainable Innovation
In assessing how sustainability aligns with SmiLe Incubator’s mission, operations, and activities, they examined how these elements correspond to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined in the United Nations’ (UN) Agenda 2030. The conclusion was that the presented SDGs are integrated into everything they undertake.
