15 companies chosen for Phase 1
The selection committee has chosen 15 promising projects for Phase I. The projects all focus on developing innovative technologies to dramatically change patient outcomes in a variety of therapeutic areas. All of our project teams are eager to make a significant impact on improving people’s lives.
The aim is now, together with BaseLaunch, Pharma partners, as well as a deep network of experts, further, assess each project and help to clearly articulate the near/mid-term milestones (preclinical, regulatory, commercial, and much more) required to further de-risk the science and build the companies.
