LSX Nordics Congress – Gold Sponsor
Coulter Partners is pleased to be sponsoring the LSX Nordics Congress September 7 – 8th 2021
Join our team for the LSX Nordic Congress – a leading senior executive strategy, investment and partnering conference for the Nordic region. The Nordic countries have long been a world-class hub for scientific and technological innovation. The LSX Nordic Congress is designed to showcase this innovation, both of the region’s industry leaders but also of the latest life sciences start-ups and technology innovators, who are driving the future of healthcare, and facilitating greater international investment, strategic partnerships and global collaboration.
And don’t miss the chance to explore a really hot topic! On 8th September, at 11:00am Coulter Partners looks forward to participating in a presentation and panel:
LEADING THE WAY, BUT WORK STILL TO BE DONE? DIVERSITY AND GENDER BALANCE IN THE NORDIC LIFE SCIENCES ECOSYSTEM
Moderator: Dr. Nanna Soni, Director, Coulter Partners
Panellists: Roger Franklin, Partner, Hadean Ventures
Inka Mero, Founder & Managing Partner, Voima Ventures
Petrina Knowles Gjelstrup, SVP People & Organisation, Novo Holdings
The Nordic countries are leading the way in gender diversity. In life sciences this is demonstrated in an increase in female-led businesses and women in Venture Capital leadership roles. What is being done right in the Nordics and what can other countries learn from this success? How far is there still to go in creating a truly equitable life science ecosystem in the region?
- On the right path, but not there yet – which national or organisational policies and practices are successful models for addressing gender imbalance?
- How can ongoing challenges be addressed practically by companies and investors when backing businesses, building management teams and selecting boards?
- To what extent are talent and wider industry experience issues a challenge in the Nordics? How can these be addressed and how can more international experience be attracted to the Nordic region?
