AQILION AB is moving to the new Prisma office building in the Oceanhamnen neighborhood of Helsingborg. The new urban icon will be completed late this fall and Aqilion will move in to its new premises in January. Much of the building will house the HETCH tech hub and Aqilion will now have its headquarters in this unique environment of tech startups and established companies.
Aqilion chose Prisma and HETCH because daily contact with the Hetch concept is a good fit for a growth-phase company. An innovative environment that offers encounters, inspiration and an atmosphere that promotes growth is extremely valuable.
“Like other industries, the biotech industry is becoming digitized at a rapid pace and implementation of new technology is crucial for successful growth. I am convinced that we can gain competitive advantages by using tools from innovative tech and AI companies. Entrepreneurship often requires courage to dare to break new ground and the opportunity to exchange experiences and ideas with others who have made the same journey is invaluable. We see it as a great advantage to be able to work in a fantastic environment with a unique network, at the same time that Aqilion gets its own dedicated premises,” says Sarah Fredriksson, CEO of AQILION AB.
“Proximity to the continent and good infrastructure are important for us since we work with several international actors. By working from both Hetch in Helsingborg and Medicon Village in Lund, we can efficiently benefit from innovative tech and life science environments.”
Aqilion is a biotech company that focuses on developing new innovative treatments for diseases caused by chronic inflammation and dysfunctional immune reactions such as autoimmune diseases. The company is mainly active in the early phases of drug discovery, from idea to early clinical development.
