The Termeer Foundation is a nonprofit organization working to connect and promote the world of healthcare innovators until every patient has a cure. We understand that bringing new treatments to patients is grueling work with a low probability of success – nearly 90% of drug candidates fail to reach the market. We believe we can improve these odds by positively impacting the human variables in healthcare. Our supports include mentoring, networking, professional development, and financial grants intended to facilitate connections, break down silos, strengthen skillsets and ultimately enable a diverse array of current and future biotech leaders who bring much-needed treatments to patients. The Termeer Foundation is committed to ensuring the inclusiveness of its network, particularly in recognition of the underrepresentation of women, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ and Black, Brown and Indigenous People of Color, within the biopharmaceutical industry.
