The program is directed by RETIS and supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Roger is one of seven regional winners to receive this award. (www.yeifrance.com).
The prize includes a soft-landing immersion and a trial incubation in a French incubator, in addition to training and individual coaching.
“I am very excited to receive this award because it will help RAN Biotech establish a presence in Europe,” says Roger.
The YEi Award Ceremony will take place on September 24 at the Cambridge Innovation Center in Cambridge, Mass. (www.cic.us).
