This financial boost will accelerate the plans of FlowBeams to innovate minimal invasive injection technology. The company wants to commercialize its novel platform technology, starting with the cosmetics market but eying the more ambitious human drug pharma. FlowBeams will expand its team, starting with Jelle Schoppink, PhD candidate in the Mesoscale Chemical Systems Group. The team’s activities will also contribute to the local and regional deep-tech innovation ecosystem.

"We are honored and grateful for the support given by the European Innovation Council and its confidence in our vision," stated Lea Milovich, CEO of FlowBeams. "This grant represents a significant milestone in our journey towards realizing the full potential of our needle-free injection technology and making a meaningful impact in the healthcare and cosmetic industries."
The time could not be more appropriate, with the recent developments in deep-tech and microchip technology in the region. FlowBeams looks forward to strengthen the ecosystem in Twente and put our region on the international map. 

FlowBeams, incorporated in 2021, is developing a revolutionary needle-free injection technology that promises to transform multiple industries, including pharmaceutics and cosmetics.
