We are delighted to announce details of our next OBN Digital Event: ‘Building an Innovative Life Sciences Company' kindly hosted by Discovery Park

on Wednesday 12 May from 13:00 - 14:00.


As an entrepreneur, working to turn your innovation into reality can be hugely challenging, with many unexpected twists and turns along the way. However a great deal can be learnt from fellow entrepreneurs, including how to identify and make the most of opportunities and using challenges to further strengthen your growing business. 

We hope that you can join us for this event when you will hear first-hand from founders of four companies based at Discovery Park, who will share insight into the key challenges they have faced and overcome, along with key learnings they would pass on to fellow founders and business leaders.  Please see below for further details.
