Life Science Mentors – Mentoring Service for Finnish Life Science Actors

Life Science Mentors (LS-Mentors) is a network of volunteers-based life science industry experts. The network is jointly run by Finnish BioindustriesPharma Industry Finland,  Healthtech FinlandIBC FinlandHelsinki Innovation Services and Life Science Accelerator. Finnish industry organisations in the Life Science field have collaboratively created an internet based mentoring service for start-up companies, fledgling entrepreneurs and researchers interested to learn to commercialise their inventions. The purpose of the service is to share the knowledge of experienced people with beginners and support their business development. The service is offered free of charge.

Mentoring means sharing information and experience with those who are in need of it. Finnish industry organisations Pharmaceutical Industry Finland, Healthtech Finland and Finnish Bioindustries decided together with other actors such as Helsinki Innovation Service, Life Science Accelerator/Turku Business Region and IBC Finland to produce a Life Science focused mentoring service. Due to the special characteristics of the Life Science sector, mentors are required to have knowledge and experience of special subjects such as lengthy product development trajectories, which often require in-depth scientific research and long term venture capital investment. Regulation is also very strict in the Life Science field.

Life Science Mentors internet service is offered to all researchers, start-up companies and fledgling entrepreneurs, who need support e.g. in commercialisation of their research, business development, marketing, and management of intellectual property. The service is internet based and the organisations that provide the service act as moderators, who make matches between mentors and mentorees. Privacy of mentors and mentorees will be carefully protected. The persons who act as mentors are professionals with long experience in Life Science companies and other organisations.

Life Science Mentors service is open to everybody and it is provided in English language.
