Posted on Updated on

onestartOneStart has been in touch with us about their biotech start up programme. If you fancy the chance to win £100k and free lab space, read on…

Apply by 1st December for a chance to win £100k to realise your business idea

Do you have an idea to solve a critical problem in healthcare? Or do you have the scientific or business know-how to help someone else develop their idea? The Oxbridge Biotech Roundtable (OBR) and SR One, the venture capital arm of GlaxoSmithKline, have teamed up again for the OneStart competition – the largest biotech startup accelerator programme in the world – to offer young innovators from all disciplines the chance to win £100k with free lab space at Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst near London, and ongoing legal and business advice from our sponsors to transform their ideas into a successful business.

Applications are now open until 1st December 2014. To learn more about the programme and start building your team, visit www.oxbridgebiotech.com/onestart.

Who should participate?

  • Science/medical students and researchers interested in spinning out their research or commercializing their ideas
  • Business students and young professionals keen to get involved in the biotech and healthcare industries
  • Software developers and engineers interested in contributing their technical skills to realising a product
  • Anyone interested in entrepreneurship

You do not need to have a team yet, or even have your own idea, as you can register now at our Co-founder Hub (and Discussion Forum) to find teammates to complement your strengths, show your interest to join other teams. Ideas at all stages of development are welcome.

All semi-finalists will be directly mentored by experienced industry professionals for at least six weeks, and invited to attend a biotech business bootcamp in London in February 2015 with workshops from our global sponsors, including SR One, Johnson & Johnson Innovation, Roche, McKinsey, and others.

We look forward to meeting you in person or via www.oxbridgebiotech.com/onestart.

If you have any questions at all, please do get in touch via sybil.wong@oxbridgebiotech.com.
