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
This is an incredibly exciting time to be involved in Biotech Entrepreneurship. Impressive advances are being continuously achieved as the field gradually transforms into Synthetic Biology. The possibilities to revolutionize science, technology, the economy and society are staggering.

I envision a future where efficient nanoscale engineering will transform cells and molecules into programmable microrobots and nanomachines that will operate multiple tasks within human cells and tissues.

As a senior genetics student with an in-depth expertise in Molecular & Cellular Biology, Biochemistry, experimental design, biostatistics, and exceptional interests in Machine Learning, Big Data, Computational Modelling and Evolutionary & Genetic Programming, I wish to take part in shaping the future.

Brief intro
I am passionate about translating the basic science research I conduced at Stanford into the clinic. In February 2016, I co-founded Jungla with fellow scientist Carlos L. Araya at Stanford. We are committed to transforming advances at the interface of genomics and biophysics into diagnostic solutions. Over the past 3 years, we have developed powerful bioinformatic technologies to address critical needs in personalized medicine. We are motivated by a shared vision for converting genomic information into actionable information and synergies in our protected technologies.

Oxford, United Kingdom + intro

Brief intro
I am a medical doctor (2012 Oxford alumnus) and I am now in my 3rd year of my DPhil (PhD) in Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford. I am interested in bio entrepreneurship and innovation. Having a medical background, I know how the hospitals work and the patients' needs which is essential in order to identify a good gap in the market. In addition, doing my DPhil in basic and translational research, I have good exposure to lab techniques, seminars, state-of-the-art technology and I have seen how research is being translated to have a clinically relevant effect. I would like to collaborate in forming a biotech company. I am interested in a wide range of biomedical topics, so if you want to collaborate get in touch.
