The Henri Termeer Transatlantic Connections Award is an annual award competition for life science entrepreneurs from the Netherlands and Massachusetts. Each year the Termeer Foundation and Health-Holland will select two life science entrepreneurs; one from Cambridge, MA and the other from the Netherlands. Each recipient should be involved in leading innovative biomedical activities and whose programs have the potential to strengthen transatlantic relations between the two life science regions. Candidates should have already established themselves within the life science industry leading an early-stage company, with a concrete business plan and initial funding in place.

Additionally, the recipient must be someone interested in becoming actively involved in mentorship and who agrees to be involved in Termeer Foundation programs. Awardees receive Fellowship status within The Termeer Foundation, which includes access to experienced healthcare mentors, networking with fellow peer entrepreneurs, and recognition at The Termeer Foundation Annual Dinner. Recipients will also have the opportunity to spend a week visiting their fellow awardee’s company, and to participate in additional learning, networking and cultural events. Recipients will be announced at the end of April, 2021.

Applications are now open for the 2021 Henri Termeer Transatlantic Connections Award.
