Talent Accelerator Programme for BioBusiness (TAP BioBusiness) is a training & mentoring programme for the next generation BioBusiness leaders for the Dutch and Belgium Life Sciences & Health sector!
During this intensive 7-month programme, with in total 10 training days distributed over 4 modules, junior biobusiness professionals can learn in a group of peers from experienced executives, topic experts and each other through intervision coaching. The programme features inspiring experience stories, interactive case studies and various training and feedback sessions. The programme will accelerate the learning curve of these biobusiness professionals and thereby contribute to the growth and success of the companies in the the Dutch and Belgian Life Sciences & Health sector.

TAP BioBusiness will help you to develop quickly in your commercial role in Life Sciences. Whether you are a Business Developer in a biotech/pharma/CMO/CRO, a tech transfer officer at a research institute, financial analyst at a VC or a starting entrepreneur, through this program you will become more effective and productive in your role at an earlier stage, benefiting both your own career and your organization.

In a small-scale setting you will learn from experienced BioBusiness executives, experts and trainers but also from the successes and mistakes of your peers. The intensive programme offers knowledge and insights, inspiring experience stories, interactive feedback sessions, practical case studies and mentoring by seasoned BioBusiness executives with successful track records. The participants will receive advice and feedback regarding the issues they face at work and how to handle these challenges, projects and business relations. The size of the group is deliberately kept small to ensure optimal interaction.

After the TAP BioBusiness training programme, the participants will not only have increased their knowledge and insights, enhanced their personal soft skills, but have also expanded their network with a diverse mix of BioBusiness professionals from the Netherlands and Belgium, coming in handy in their line of job.

There is only room for 15 participants, the next class will start in November 2021. Apply soon to secure your spot. Early-bird discount available until the end of May. Start-ups and non-profits get a reduced fee.


TAP BioBusiness is organized in the context of the EU-funded Health & Life Science (HELIS) Academy by Hyphen Projects in collaboration with flanders.bio with support from a.o. Interreg Flanders-Netherlands and the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.
