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
I've successfully founded and run Biorelate for the last year. During this time I've secured numerous grants, won various start-up competitions, generated revenue and learnt the ropes for setting up a successful biotech business. I also have a PhD in bioinformatics (with specialist expertise in text-mining), masters in computational biology, bachelors in biology and industry experience from working at Merck and Pfizer. I'm more than happy to come on board and offer my skills and experience to an exciting idea with great potential.

Daniel Hardej
London, United Kingdom + intro

Brief intro
I'm currently studying for my Masters Mechanical Engineering, and am also a prospective PhD student.

I have extensive experience in bio-medical engineering research, focusing on computational modelling of cardiovascular biomechanics, as well as cardiovascular medical device design. Specifically, my focus is in replacement aortic heart valves and optimization of the interventional surgical procedures in this area. This is the area in which I will be studying for my PhD, where I plan to explore the use of bio-3D printing in the manufacture of these devices.

I have a strong background in computational fluid dynamics, CAD, and am highly proficient in Python (including NumPy/SciPy and TensorFlow), C++, and MATLAB programming.

amsterdam, Netherlands + intro

Brief intro
For the past few years I have had a continuous flow of motivation to learn. I graduated with a degree in Biology from USA then I returned to my home country Egypt and studied Medicine. Throughout my medical studies I prepared myself for Neuroscience research by obtaining training in multiple institutions in USA and Europe. Then I did a European Masters in Neuroscience at top universities in Germany and Netherlands. I am interested in being part of a start up focusing on Neurodegenerative diseases and I believe I have a very strong background to allow me to be of benefit. I'm independent yet enjoy being part of a team. I am aware of all aspects of Neurodegenerative diseases from molecular to clinical including what patients experience. Research, for me, is more than a career, it's a cause.

Brief intro
I am looking to solve important problems in healthcare. As a recent U.C. Berkeley graduate, I have
worked at various software and health-tech companies, the latest being Counsyl and Google Life Sciences. I have a strong software and stats background. Healthcare lies at the intersection of engineering, medicine, biology, statistics, etc. Hence, I would like to join a highly diverse team that's dedicated to a common mission. Having worked at different companies, I can offer my insight and ideas on different approaches to problem solving, design, and strategy. I have an especially strong passion to help cancer patients and anyone else involved in the process of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
