Biotech Booster is a national program to support commercialization of biotechnology findings in The Netherlands. This National Growth Fund (NGF) supported program builds on collaborating intensely between all relevant public and private partners in biotechnology.
The Biotech Booster program offers mentorship, financial support and networking opportunities, to guide founders from the idea stage to developing an investable/commercial proposition. Biotech Booster is an excellent opportunity for scientists and entrepreneurs in the biotech sector to valorize their ideas and grow a successful business. The ultimate goal is to make sure that the benefits of biotechnology will have more and faster impact on society. To establish expert guidance we created five Thematic Clusters (TC’s) following Biotechnological focus areas: White: Industrial Biotechnology & Production (TC 1); Green: AgroFood biotechnology (TC 2); Red: human health, diagnostics, therapeutics (TC 3, 4 & 5). Each level 1 project will work with the best fitting TC.
