We are very thrilled that LEO Innovation Lab is our new sponsor for Startup Weekend Health.

LEO Innovation Lab is a new DKK 500 mio. independent unit, established by the industry leading pharmaceutical company LEO Pharma as part of a long-term strategic decision to focus on patient’s needs.

The message from LEOiLab is clear:

“We believe that creative and talented people will participate in Startup Weekend Aarhus Health. If you put together a bunch of crazy people for 54 hours - and provide enough inspiration – magic will happen. We from LEO Innovation Lab want to meet these people and experience this magic. See you on Friday!”

LEOiLab don’t develop medical treatments – instead, we look at all the aspects of everyday life that can affect a person who has psoriasis. LEO Innovation Lab has been established as a separate entity to create a smaller, more agile organization, where innovation can thrive and solutions be brought to market and tested faster.

As LEO Pharma is owned entirely by the LEO Foundation and has no shareholders, its profits are reinvested in developing new solutions to support the overall mission: To help people achieve healthy skin. This unique ownership structure has made it possible to establish LEO Innovation Lab with no profit requirements – just a goal of making a difference to people living with psoriasis.
