Special Event: PfizerTalks with John Gordon (Pfizer), Rinke Zonneveld (InnovationQuarter) and Annemiek Verkamman (HollandBIO), introduction by Mark Soued (Pfizer)

November 1, 2018, 17:15 - 20:00


At Pfizer, our ambition is to build partnerships that enhance patient healthcare and meaningfully impact the healthcare system. We seek inspirational and challenging partnerships, both traditional and out-of-the-box.

We strongly believe knowledge that could positively impact healthcare via a holistic approach should be accessible to all. We also value the vast knowledge and experience available from influential thinkers across all walks of life.

Therefore, Pfizer introduces PfizerTalks, the knowledge platform where inspiring and knowledgeable minds come together to challenge the status quo, share their valuable insights and seek to learn from each other.

Attend a PfizerTalks during one of the Venture Café Thursday Gatherings and get the chance to network with the key note speakers during the network drink.
