The range of services of the WBC
Provision of evaluations
Our involvement alongside the project initiators starts with a series of evaluations that feed into an information and advisory dossier that the incubator compiles in order to confirm and consolidate the project investment and value proposal with potential partners.
We can arrange partially remunerated management appointments through a subsidy from Sowalfin to recruit experienced managers specialised in supporting incubated companies. We can also arrange management appointments before the creation of a company in order to support the first fund raising.
We have our own financial resources, which are neither subsidies nor aid, in order to accelerate the process of setting up and industrialising incubated companies. The granting and repayment conditions of these amounts are defined on a case-by-case basis in order to provide a solution tailor-made to each project.
Provision of expertise
We have an established twofold knowledge of the Life Sciences sector and the creation of businesses. This experience, enriched by contributions from experts selected for their specialised skills, is made available to each supported project.
Provision of a network
We are closely connected to the large network of biotechnology industries both in Wallonia and internationally. The supported projects benefit from this network to develop partnerships and accelerate their commercial deployment.
Support with promotion
On the request of companies, we can represent them at fairs or other international meetings in order to collect targeted information or to promote their activities. The objectives of this representation go from preliminary commercial canvassing to a search for partners or service points abroad.
Long term support
In order to achieve our joint objective of success in a sector known for the length of its development cycles, we count on long term assistance and monitor the incubated companies over a period of six years. This also enables us to intervene on a number of occasions at key moments of a long project.
