Inspired by the popular television show "Dragons' Den", AmorChem holds an annual KNOCK OUT™ Event. Researchers chosen to participate in the AmorChem KNOCK OUT Event fight it out in the ring against a panel of seasoned biotech executives for the chance of being granted an AmorChem financing of up to $500,000.
This year again, we invite you to submit your applications to be part of the 2017 KNOCK OUT final round, to be held December 6, in Quebec City, as part of the 11thedition of the Quebec City Healthcare Industry Forum (www.fisqc.com).
Last year, the KNOCK OUT was held on June 2, 2016 during the the second edition of the Lumira/AmorChem Event. An enthusiastic full house was entertained by our host, Christopher Hall. Dr. Anne-Marie Mes-Masson from CRCHUM and Institut du cancer de Montréal, emerged victorious from the battle, having successfully responded to the hits from Rick Lesniewski (GSK, Abbott), John Gillard (Merck, BioChem Pharma and Aegera Therapeutics), John Bell (Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and the University of Ottawa) and Lloyd Segal (Persistence Capital Partners and Caprion).
