Develop your idea or company

#1. Find the right financing

There can be many occasions when external funding may be needed, for example, if you are going to develop a new product, take your business abroad, or if your company is growing.

We at Uppsala BIO can help you secure the right funding for your needs, but you can also start your search at, a site that collates public financial support information and tells you what to keep in mind when seeking finance. Swelife and Vinnova also offer useful information.

#2. Find the right partner

The database is a web-based search tool for all who intend to develop an idea for a healthcare service or product. Here you can quickly, easily – and free-of-charge – find your collaborative partner from start-ups to established industry leaders. You can also enter your own company.
