Johnson & Johnson Innovation’s approach to early-stage healthcare partnerships in Switzerland and Europe

Johnson & Johnson Innovation is a global network focused on accelerating all stages of innovation by forming collaborations between external partners and the Johnson & Johnson family of Companies. The Innovation Centre in London acts as a gateway into Europe. They work alongside JJDC (the strategic venture capital arm of Johnson & Johnson Innovation) as well as JLABS (incubator facilities). On top of that, Johnson & Johnson Innovation has formed a range of incubator partnerships, including with BaseLaunch, and investment vehicles to fund collaborations with academia and government. This enables them to have their feet on the ground in all relevant innovation hotspots in Europe and to find and partner with game changing innovators, wherever they are located.
If you are interested to learn more on how Johnson & Johnson Innovation collaborates with external partners, what they look for when investing through JJDC and more, join us at this event organized with Johnson & Johnson Innovation. Participation to the event is free of charge; however, your registration by 11th October 2019 is kindly required.
