In 2007, in collaboration with Biocat (Catalan Bioregion), trifermed designed a one-day training course in business development for entrepreneurs. After five consecutive successful editions, Biocat decided to develop an entrepreneurship program called D·Health Barcelona based on the Stanford Biodesign Model. In this context, trifermed was also part of the Advisory Team for the course, actively mentoring teams from the first edition.

In 2012 trifermed started an active collaboration with the Entrepreneurship Institute at ESADE Business School in Barcelona (ranked among the top 10 full-time MBA providers in Europe). Starting with mentoring support for all types of the MBA programmes and entrepreneur accelerating projects in healthcare, in 2015 ESADE asked trifermed to develop an elective course called “Entrepreneurship in Healthcare”, for international Master’s Degree programmes. After two successful editions, the elective healthcare course has successfully enabled its participants to access the healthcare arena, growing in student numbers and its attractiveness.

“I have found the Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Healthcare course one of the most interesting courses I have had this year. On the one hand, we have been able to learn a lot because of the hands-on approach of our group work in which we founded a company and kept tweaking our investment pitch, supported by comments from our classmates and industry experts. On the other hand, we have been able to discuss many sides of the healthcare industry and learn how innovation processes are driven. I particularly liked the many high-profile guest speakers that were able to give us in an-depth view into many interesting areas, such as venture capital, IP management and innovation in hospitals. I can recommend this course to anyone who is considering working in the healthcare industry, regardless of their background, as it provides a unique and detailed insight into the industry.”

trifermed also openly collaborates with other national and international universities for training programmes on demand, as part of our endeavour to transfer all the developed knowledge to new generations.

In the third decade of the XXI century (2020 – 2030), trifermed plans to develop its own Healthcare Business Development Institute with direct presence in Europe, America and Asia.
