Co-founder hub

"OneStart is a colossal stimulus for university entrepreneurship at all levels from undergraduates to academic staff."

– Hagan Bayley, Co-founder of Oxford Nanopore

The OneStart Co-founder Hub gives you the chance to build your perfect team or join a biotech startup.

All teams are advised to browse this hub to complement their teams with co-founders. One of our judging criteria will be the breadth of expertise within your team.

If you do not have an idea of your own, but experience or skills that would be useful to a bio-entrepreneur, register now as a co-founder. Our goal is to link people with ideas with those who can help them realise it.

Send an email now to somebody below, and who knows, you might be picking up an oversized cheque with them in May 2016.

Brief intro
Hi there! I'm a final year PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. My research work on synthesis of nano-carbon materials for applications in energy and biology is extremely multidisciplinary & versatile in nature.

Furthermore, I'm an alumini of the Singapore-Stanford design programme ( 2012), where my team and I successfully designed and patented a medical device over the duration of 4 months.

With a belief that sometimes the most complex problems have
the simplest solutions, innovation, combined with a relentless will to strategically plan and execute is a trait that I have been continuously and successfully exhibiting over the course of my PhD studies.

Brief intro
I'm a PhD student in Aston University at Ebri institute and I'm part of the Surface, Material and Catalysis group and I have developed skills in characterisation and synthesis of new materials, followed by their application. Therefore the knowledge I will bring is fundamental for this project. I'm interested in biotech because I know only a little about that.

Singapore, Singapore + intro

Brief intro
I am a behavioral and data scientists specializing in statistical modelling in health, science and technology research. As a data scientist, I use data analytical tools to address big questions in health and technology sectors - such as understanding the psychological reasons for making health decisions or acceptance of technology. My works have been published in top journals such as Journal of Health Communication and Journal of Nanoparticle Research. I look forward to meeting and working with people who have a passion to use data analytics to address issues in health and science sectors.

Brief intro
Development of precisely tuned polymer peptide-drug conjugates for drug delivery
Codelviery of drugs for cancer treatment is a routine approach in clinics. However, the treatment poses several issues, such as different cellular uptakes and biodistribution of two different drugs. The development of carefully tuned polymer-peptide vectors would allow site specific attachment of each drug to the polymer-peptide backbone, hence fixing the molar ratio of two drugs per polymer chain.

Harshad Gupta
Mumbai, India + intro

Brief intro
During my Masters project, I have worked on stretchable electronic devices which I think has huge applications in human-machine interfaces. My experience fabricating such devices can be useful for people working in this areas. Along with that I have a Bachelors degree in Polymer Engineering during which I have gained knowledge about polymer chemistry, their synthesis and processing.
Apart from my academic background, I also have experience working in a FinTech startup as Product development associate. I believe this experience has given me a entrepreneural perspective to look at ideas and also motivated to try something into human-machine interface. Anyone interested please contact me on watsapp +91 9930527904
