Convincing insights

UZH Innovation Grants – Inputs of our coaches

««Before deciding on the indication and designing your proof-of-concept experiments to wow investors and industry, research the problem you aim to solve. Understand and test the characteristics of a minimal viable product in the market including parameters like safety, efficacy, price, drug formulation and dosing. Talk to prescribers, users, and payers to learn why or why not they would choose your products over alternatives on market and in development.»

Liliane Brunner Halbach
PhD, Deputy Head TDA and advisor for translational projects


«At the beginning of the entrepreneurial journey it's important to define, test - and reject - as many market need hypotheses as possible. By doing this, the company learns to focus on what is most likely leading to a sustainable business case.»
