>Nearly after a month of back and forth conversations with ScaBalt agents, the answer has finally been given: Black Pearls LQT Fund, a capital fund based in Gdańsk, has been accepted at ScanBalt for a membership in 2015.
ScanBalt is a platform founded to promote innovation, competence development and efficient sharing of existing resources and infrastructures in Health and Life Science within the Baltic Sea region. It’s a meeting point for innovators through which “awareness, visibility and match making” are kindled. It’s a non-profit-membership-driven association of clusters, networks, companies, research institutions, hospitals, public authorities and other organizations. By signing up to ScanBalt members have access to support in activities such as: promotion, talent exchange, establishment of partnerships, fund attraction, access to potential investment targets, project development and more.
Out of all activities carried out by Scanbalt, project support is their core competency. The association is presently involved in implementing projects by the EU Strategy for the Baltic Region. These projects aim to bring scientific “unity” into the Baltic Sea region. The mission is described by ScanBalt as “Baltic Sea region as one test site for development of health care”.
Black Pearls LQT Fund is presently commited to a 3 year investment plan in Life Quality Technologies. For Black Pearls joining ScanBalt is an important step in the expansion and development of the organization since it will:
- Increase exports of polish innovative solutions,
- Expand the commercialization of research results from LQT projects
- Create a cost-effective, dynamic and cooperative work environment (in the Baltic Sea region) as result of the facilitated flow of information and scientific data within the ScanBalt community”
