Xeltis CEO on leading start-ups to success at START Summit
At this year’s START Summit, Xeltis’ CEO Laurent Grandidier will share insights on how he drove Xeltis’ transformation from research entity into one of the most promising medtech start-ups. He is the mastermind behind an oversubscribed €45 million Series C fundraiser, the largest in European medtech in 2017, that will help catapult Xeltis’ strategy forward and accelerate its aortic and pulmonary valve programs.
“Spotting the distinctive traits of a potentially successful start-up, turning a promising technology into successful products and selecting the right investors are entrepreneurial skills that proved fundamental at Xeltis,” explained Grandidier. “I look forward to sharing my insights with young start-up founders and entrepreneurs, and get inspired by their fast and creative minds,” he added.
Laurent Grandidier is an MBA graduate from business school INSEAD and, in his own words, “200% entrepreneur.” Follow him at START Summit today at 11:45am on the Main Stage.
The START Summit is Europe’s leading student-led conference for entrepreneurship and technology. This year, it is expected to gather over 2,000 young entrepreneurs, investors, high-profile speakers and tech influencers from around the world.
