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.
The 2017 KNOCK OUT final round was held December 6, in Quebec City, as part of the 11th edition of the Quebec City Healthcare Industry Forum (www.fisqc.com), during the Lumira-AmorChem Event.
An enthusiastic full house was entertained by our host, Christopher Hall. Dr. Nancy Braverman from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, emerged victorious from the battle, having successfully responded to the hits from Rick Lesniewski (CEO Madison Vaccines Company Inc.), John Gillard (COO, KalGene Pharmaceuticals Inc.), Daniel Durocher (Co-founder Repare Therapeutics Inc.) and Youssef Bennani (Chairman of the board of Domain Therapeutics Inc.).
