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
I have a PhD in Biomedical Sciences and I am interested in Biotech entrepreneurship in London. Alongside my PhD I attended courses relating to business development, negotiations and opportunity identification. Moreover, I am following a 3 month internship at WSF, an Accelerator, at which I am gaining hands-on experience on the early stages of a start-up and I am helping WSF set up a health acceleration program. My passion for science, interest in cutting edge research and hypothesis-driven approach to problem solving are a combination that would allow me to translate scientific innovation from ideas to commercial reality and is something which I want to further develop. I would welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss my interests and added value further.

Brief intro
I conducted research on cardiovascular disease and carbon nanotubes in high school, leading to my biomedical engineering research and thesis developing actuated cilia for artificial arteries to treat cardiovascular disease. Recognizing the gap between developing these innovative technologies and getting them to the patients who need them, I pivoted to business.

I spent 5 years is commercial strategy and operations consulting, where I worked across the payer, provider, life sciences, and other industries. My role spanned financial modeling, operations, business model development, strategy, design thinking, and more. I started a service offering within my firm, and grew a startup data analytics group over a year, where I managed teams and clients.

Brief intro
I have a passion for problem solving and coming up with effective long term solutions. Currently, I am in the 2nd year of my PhD in Cancer biology. My work involves investigating and validating biomarkers for chemoresistance in ovarian cancer. In addition to this I have worked as a consultant for a charity where I was involved in developing an Evidence Gap Map for Glaucoma Patients. This helped broaden my understanding of what goes into helping patients make decisions regarding personalized treatment options.
In my spare time I like to indulge in learning how to code and improve my statistical skills ( beyond teaching undergrads).
I am interested in getting involved in a startup and would love to offer what I have learnt over the years in research/academia and consulting.

London, United Kingdom + intro

Brief intro
Through undertaking the MSci programme in Integrative Pharmacology and Physiology for Research at King’s College London, I have had significant laboratory experience both in the in vivo setting but also when attempting to design novel proof-of-concept in vitro and ex vivo assays. Furthermore, through the invaluable laboratory experience gained at the biopharmaceutical company UCB, I have become proficient in many experimental techniques including ELISA, MSD, PCR, Western Blot and multicolour flow cytometry.

I endeavour to pursue a research career in which I significantly contribute to the development of techniques and methodologies which improve our collective understanding of as yet poorly defined concepts.

Brief intro
I am a materials engineer, always looking for new challenges and opportunities.
Thanks to my background in engineering, I gained an analytical way of thinking, being able to deal with problems, identifying their causes and reaching their solutions. This has been further enhanced during my years abroad, in which I have had responsibilities for different projects, and I learnt how to be independent in dealing with the diverse issues that can arise in them.
In addition to this, since my work and studies often involved working with people from various different backgrounds, I think that my communication and teamwork skills have been enhanced and refined throughout the years. I have learned how to express, motivate and sustain my opinions, and also how to listen, and organize ideas from others

Brief intro
I did my masters in biotechnology and I earned doctorate degree in infectious where I learnt developing non-¬‐invasive tools of diagnostic biomarkers for Visceral Leishmaniasis. Presently I am focused on molecular and biochemical aspects of therapeutics against Staphylococcus aureus targeting ion channels and bioenergetics.
Now, having tremendous training and understanding in diagnostic biomarkers and therapeutic targets of pathogenic microbes, I am highly interested in industrial approach of therapeutics .As a postdoc fellow, I meticulously learned to plan, execute and comprehensively analyze the outcomes, which are clearly evident from my publications. Now, I am interested to apply my research expertise and skills in pharmaceutical industry to take basic research from lab to industry.

Brief intro
I am interested in biotech entrepreneurship because I want to contribute to the discovery, development and product launch of solutions for currently untreatable diseases. This desire inspired me to complete a PhD in neuroscience studying Alzheimer's disease, and subsequently a career at the interface of science and business. For the last two years, I have worked closely with inventors to identify and protect their inventions, establish co-developmental partnerships to de-risk early-stage technologies and negotiate the licensing of commercially viable assets to start-up companies. These experiences have allowed me to develop the skills required to translate scientific discoveries into commercially viable products.
