Co-founder hub
Overview

"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
Biotech entrepreneurship is one of the most important global markets, integrating technological advancements from a broad range of sciences to best enhance humanity. Biological processes are not only key to improving quality of life, but are also a route to numerous high-value chemicals that cannot be feasibly produced through existing industrial processes. I have a broad range of experiences in managing small teams and excel in finding solutions to complex problems, which compliments my strong background in chemistry and related Operational Health and Safety. My previous business endeavors have been successful, but were limited by their scope. I have a professional demeanor and will work hard to see my team succeed. I am genuinely interested in discussing project opportunities.

Adriana De La Garza
Biology
New York City, United States + intro

Brief intro
I started out planning to be in academia for life, but throughout my career I discovered that I would like to work on directly applicable research and providing tangible and useful options/products for people.

My current work is all done at the bench, I am very experienced in all the basic molecular biology and biochemistry techniques (think CRISPR editing, protein design and purification, RNA work, confocal microscopy, PCR, cloning, etc).

In the past I have worked with clinical samples in a massive scale to determine certain genetic traits. I am currently in an institution associated with a hospital, so I believe arrangements for collaborations and use of patient samples are possible in the future if needed by the project.
