About us


Fournier-Majoie Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is  to recognize and support entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial researchers who are willing to develop solutions to significantly benefit cancer patients.

Since its foundation in December 2006, the Fournier-Majoie foundation supports entrepreneurial researchers in every stage of biomarker development.

Our goal is to supply the medical community with the tools it needs for the early detection and/or identification and prognosis of cancer so that the cancer patients can be treated more efficiently.
In March 2014, the total amount allocated to selected projects is €4.799.453 which €3.554.916 effectively has been paid.

Venture philantropy

Our foundation is implementing a venture philantropic approach to medical R&D support: we are offering not only financial support but also non-financial guidance.

As other Venture Philantropic Organisations we maintain a set of widely accepted key characteristics. These are: high engagement, tailored financing, multi-year support, non-financial support, involvement of networks, organisational capacity-building and performance measurement.

Our goal: shortening the time from bench to bedside.
