Overview

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

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.

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.

New York, Italy + intro

Brief intro
During my PhD at University of Trento, Italy, and postgraduate experience at New York University, I devised emulsions and liposomes encapsulating biological molecules that I would like to commercialize. I developed these systems in a very multidisciplinary and international academic context but lacking of entrepreneurial spirit. I would be thrilled to join your program and bridge this gap, leading my interests towards the bioscience industry. I want to learn how to commercialize ideas and devices developed in research laboratories and how develop business models to initiate my own company.

My area of focus and interest varies from quantitative analysis to project management. I gained solid research, analytical and problem solving skills while working in academy but I miss a good knowledge
