Aortyx, participant of the 2019’s IMAGINE IF! Program

IMAGINE IF! is an Innovation Forum’s pre-accelerator pitch competition for science-based ventures that aims to boast a truly global reach. On January, Aortyx was selected as one of the nine participants for the program’s third edition, as well as Angiotheragnostics, Biel Glasses, Flomics, Galactica Biotech, Loop Dx, Mimark, Rheo Dx and TargetRANK.

This year’s program included 11 workshops where national and international leaders have acted as mentors in their fields of expertise, such as pitching for investors, business valuation, technology transfer, business development or financial and marketing strategy. We would like to thank all the mentors that have helped Aortyx during the program: Mike Doherty, Salomé de Cambra, Maribel Bergés, Laura Rodriguez, Cecilia López, Clara Nascimento, Julia Pardo, Carlos Martínez, Juan R. García, Oscar Pérez and Esther Riambau.

Aside from the workshops, 2019 was the first edition of the IMAGINE IF! Program to include the Pitch in a Pub session, an activity where 3 speakers had 5 minutes to pitch their start-ups in a distended Pub atmosphere. Noemí, CTO and Co-Founder of Aortyx, was one of the speakers and the winner of this first session of pitching, which served as a training for the IMAGINE IF! final, that will take place on March 5th.

Presentation FFF investors

Aortyx has officially opened the Seed Round by presenting the project to friends and family and eager to join the founders in their venture as early-stage investors. The goal of this Seed Round is to raise 300.000 € to start the in vivo experimentation and secure the industrial property of the company. It has been a very emotional day in which the founders felt the support of those who have been along them since the very beginning. The team explained the project for 20 minutes and then answered questions from the audience (more than 70 people present), mostly regarding technicalities of the project and doubts on the return of the investment. The event ended with an informal cocktail where investors could interact closely with the members of our team.
