"I entered the program with two goals - to gain a new perspective and understanding of the field I hadn't previously known much about (life science innovations) and to make new contacts and friendships with like-minded people. In both cases, my expectations were surpassed during the 8-month period, and thanks to Lifbee, I will once again see the world through different eyes."

we provide a contractual framework and human support to help you:

  • Courage
    I'm not afraid to get out of my comfort zone and use your creativity to find solutions. I have confidence in myself that the apparent obstacles will not deter me from my goal. Courage is always the first step on the road to success.
  • Ethics
    I understand ethics as the intersection of the consciousness of suffering, the intention to remove it, and the knowledge of the path that leads to a solution. I consider the aspect of ethics and morality in decision-making and actively learn to grow ethically. I can take responsibility for myself and my actions. I try to look at the world through the eyes of another. I protect and seek compassion for living beings who feel fear, pain and insecurity just like everyone else.
  • Constructive approach
    Many things around us don't work perfectly. I have the ability to change things in my hands. I know how to get actively involved and create solutions that bring change and solve a real problem. Enthusiasts will get a good solution on their own.
  • Integrity
    I am consistent in my thoughts and actions. I try to act in accordance with my values, even if it can be uncomfortable for me.
  • Community
    A quality community creates a subsoil in which skilled people have the opportunity to grow. Mutual, informal and selfless help can start revolutionary projects. I want to be part of and actively contribute to the community of active innovators who want to change the world around them.
