Healthcare Manager, Ship2B Foundation

I am absolutely passionate about healthcare innovation and entrepreneurship, at all levels. It all started after I finished my PhD in molecular genetics and decided to jump off the research space and start working as Business Developer in the startup Mind the Byte, SL. They were two marvelous and hectic years in which I became Business Development Director and got to learn a lot and see the flesh and bones of the health entrepreneurial reality.
Eventually, we had to shut down the company, a painful process in which we learned even more.
After that, I worked in Vall d'Hebron Research as Project Manager in Business Development & Innovation, in BioExpert Network as Company Analyst and I try to collaborate with as many projects as possible in which to work closely with the beautiful world of the healthcare startup ecosystem.
I am currently working at the Ship2B Foundation as the Healthcare Manager in the Health&Care Acceleration program, helping and supporting early stage
startups reach their objectives.
