The Health & Bio Team Dating project was created through the collaboration of four institutions: Banc Sabadell, the fifth-largest Spanish banking group, Biocat, Bosch i Gimpera Foundation and CataloniaBio, three bodies representing the life sciences sector in Catalonia.
The initiative aims to dynamize and promote the development of the Catalan bioentrepreneurial ecosystem by linking entrepreneurs with projects.
We expect this event to lead to formal collaborations between business professionals and research groups in balanced management teams to create new life sciences start-ups with high potential.

companies, but their scientific leaders do not have the expertise, time,
interest or tools to make that happen.
• There is a pool of entrepreneurs willing to work on projects and seeking
out new challenges that aren’t aware of the opportunities in our sector.
• We have a powerful ecosystem (researchers, entrepreneurs, investors,
institutions), but there is a lack of collaborative ventures.
