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
With a recent PhD in cell biology, I am a postdoc developing novel assays applicable in preclinical drug discovery processes. I co-invented and developed a novel method for testing specific enzymatic reactions in a high-throughput manner, which is currently undergoing a European patent application process.

Besides my research skills, I gained experience in technology commercialisation and business development through my current work in a dynamically growing international network of innovative entrepreneurs, researchers and investors.

An enthusiastic team player with a strong background in molecular biology and drug discovery, with some experience in IP protection, technology commercialisation and investment, I am now looking to join a great team for a new, exciting challenge!

Brief intro
I worked with E.coli metabolic pathways which give the relationships among compounds and the conversion of a certain mass of precursor material to another mass of products during a particular time period such as GABA and Malic acid.
I also worked in the field of molecular biology with the bacterial two-component regulatory system, which serve as a basic stimulus-response coupling mechanism, allowing organisms to sense and respond to changes in many different environmental conditions.
Presently, I am working in project to determine the protein structure and function of some Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria for drug-designing.

Brief intro
i am interested in biotech entrepreneurship due to it being part and parcel of my career path, and having knowledge of how biotechnology is shaping medicine, and molecular biology. Also, I come from Nigeria where entrepreneurship is budding and opportunities are abundant to make impact in science and technology. It is my wish to help bridge the gap and provide solutions to problems pertaining innovation and healthcare in my home country.

Presently I am a PhD student in Cancer studies at Bangor University where i am opening myself to breakthrough studies and throughput research and improvising materials and method stop achieve results. This affords me with a repertoire of skills and knowledge which is being constantly developed.

Brief intro
I’m Kwan, a third year PhD student in biomedical science from Imperial College London. My project now is about the application of stem cells, besides, I have my Master degree in toxicology, from which I can provide some idea about the toxicity test. Since I’ve been working in academia for a while, I’m always interested in understanding how to put the finding in the lab into real market. So if you think I fit in your team, please feel free to contact me.

Gabriel Ginorio
Cambridge, United States + intro

Brief intro
Sophomore at MIT studying MechE minoring in Biomedical Engineering. In the Langer laboratory I have worked in developing a controlled release vaccine for polio and in testing formulations for its stabilization. Currently I work in developing and testing a tissue engineered heart valve scaffold using polymers. This past summer I interned in a pre-clinical startup lab in Chile and developed experiments for isolation, characterization and differentiation of a pluripotent stem cell called Muse cell. It was a very enriching experience as I was exposed to industry and startups while also to many in-vitro as well as in-vivo techniques. Now, I'm taking a graduate level class on building a healthcare startup from scratch, so I'm developing valuable business skills that I will use in my career.
