Limnopharma has been awarded as one of the 5 finalists in the Startup Andalucía Roadshow program, awarding the most innovative startups companies in Andalucia. The other awardees have been Myhixel, OWO games, Scoobic Urban Mobility and Wuolah. The five winners will now join a program to increase their international visibility and attend investors forums, such as South Summit (Madrid), Websummit (Lisboa), Alhambra Venture (Granada) or 4YFN (Barcelona). 72 projects entered the competition, and 32 were selected to participate in an executive program focused on scale up and fund raising. The program also included individual mentoring sessions with a mentoring team including successful entrepreneurs and business executives. 12 startups out of this 32 reached the final phase of the program, focused on connecting these startups with national and international investors. These 12 startups pitched in the final gala last April 21st in Seville, and a jury selected the 5 companies awarded in this first edition of the program.
Limnopharma’s team is very proud of having been selected as 5 of the winners in this competitive program and hope that the internationalization program they are joining now will help them secure the funding needed to complete preclinical regulatory experiments for their first product, LIM21.
