How can Johnson & Johnson Innovation help you reach your goals? Johnson & Johnson Innovation (JJI) is supporting innovation in major life science clusters through the life science incubator, Johnson & Johnson Innovation, JLABS (JLABS), with the ultimate aim of enabling commercialization of new healthcare solutions for patients. We know what you, the innovator, need to get your science to patients. It is because of you that JJI created regional centers that host a team of science and transaction experts whose goal is to find high potential early-stage (pre-clinical proof-of-concept) innovation and form custom business solutions around it to help accelerate the science to the patient. The JJI team has broad deal-making capabilities with the flexibility to adapt the deal structures to the science.
On September 19, hear from Johnson & Johnson Innovation leaders as they provide an overview of J&J Innovation goals and mission, highlighting how J&J Innovation interacts with the entrepreneurial community through JLABS, JJDC, and other J&J Innovation initiatives.
Speakers will also be on hand to meet with a handful of applicants one-on-one after the presentation. Apply now!
