Orion’s Innovation Call

Innovestor and Orion are looking for startup and scaleup companies that develop innovative solutions for further drug discovery and development.

We are especially looking for new, promising medical solutions in the following areas:

1-4 companies will be chosen to meet and discuss future collaboration with Orion. For these companies, the discussions can open access to, for example, Orion’s networks, know-how, R&D resources, and commercialization possibilities. Orion’s team is committed to bringing their know-how about drug discovery and development and processes to achieve concrete mutual results.

“We are looking for new treatments for unmet needs of the patients, to strengthen our drug discovery and development activities by finding new partners with high-level expertise. With our vast R&D know-how, we want to help your company bring your solution to the next level.”
