“PanaceaStars is a great platform for early ventures to get experience in business planning and exposure to top-tier investors. I have been acting as a mentor for PanaceaStars companies for the last 4 years and I have helped the companies I have mentored to refine their value added proposition and improve their pitch to potential investors. It has been a pleasure working with world-class teams and learning about the fascinating technologies they want to bring to the market”.
Dr Michalis Papadakis, Brainomix Limited
