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
What interests me most about biotech entrepreneurship is the ability for small companies to focus on and develop new technologies that can improve the world around us. I believe that my 3 years of experience with consulting has granted me a unique and advantageous skillset of having both a business and biology background. This gives me a distinct advantage with helping advise small biotech companies that are new to the world of business.

Manchester, United Kingdom + intro

Brief intro
Through reaching the finals and creating an award winning business plan as MD for our company idea within the Biotech YES scheme, my insight into the biotech industry began. From then on, I have worked as an intellectual property fellow at UMIP, and as part of OBR's consultancy team being exposed to a wide array of scientific research, and the necessary and complex pathways through to commercialisation. As a scientist I enjoy understanding and analysing the research, but more recently, I have developed and transferred these skills for more commerce-oriented outcomes. I will bring my current understanding and abilities to any team, and put my all into the business and look forward to working with other like-minded people.

London, Canada + intro

Brief intro
I believe that any idea, no matter how simple that can help diagnose, treat, evaluate treatments or simply reduce symptoms of a disease should be granted a chance to be translated into a usable technology or product to improve patient outcomes. I believe that biotech entrepreneurship is the means to achieving this.
I bring extensive technical skills in software and firmware development, investigative and research skills including the ability to design, analyzed and evaluate outcomes of experiments. I also bring communication skills, public speaking and technical writing allowing me to share knowledge with both scientific and consumer communities. Finally, I bring the passion and ambition to make a difference along with it comes the hard work, problem solving and dedication.

Bay Area, CA, United States + intro

Brief intro
I am a postdoc with 12 years of experience in research, mainly infectious disease. Research in academia does not motivate me anymore, because I do not see the impact of my work on people's lives. So, I started looking more into the biotech world and recently got very interested in the business side. Being part of a team of smart and passionate people, that want to change healthcare is in alignment with my career priorities. I also think it will be amazing to learn so many new things outside of research and be able to build something from scratch. I have been looking into jobs in start-ups because I like the mentality. So, why not start my own? I bring years of research experience, analytical and problem solving skills, communication skills and a passion for learning and collaborating.
