The pre-seed competition m4 Award is awarded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, State Development and Energy.
The m4 Award is aimed at academic research projects with spin-off potential in the field of biomedicine.
Up to five teams receive up to 500.000 Euro for up to 2 years. This is intended to ensure the ability to obtain follow-up financing. In addition, all awarded projects receive intensive project support on the way to founding a company.
„For us, the m4 Award was the first essential stepping stone towards a successful start of our company.“
Dr. Nils A. Kulak, PreOmics GmbH
"The m4 Award allowed us to validate our idea. With the closing of our first financing round, we can now really take off."
Dr. Jonas Helma-Smets, Tubulis GmbH
"The m4 Award and BioM's support were essential for our spin-off Trianta Immunotherapies, which was acquired by Medigene AG in 2014."
Prof. Dr. Dolores Schendel, Medigene AG
