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 am interested in biotech entrepreneurship because I have a passion for health information technology. Unfortunately, HIT is far behind most other industries. I want to be part of the solution that narrows and closes that gap.

I have completed a Masters in Public Health program, am in the process of a Health Information Technology Certificate program, and work in the healthcare field, which has given me insight into how biotech can solve healthcare problems. Additionally, I have previously studied design and psychology, which will aid in creating a user friendly and attractive product.

Brief intro
Working for your own company and building it from nothing but an idea and enthusiasm is the highest level of personal achievement. Taking responsibility, pushing own creativity, enjoying in other team members' prosperity is everything that entrepreneur will want to have. It is time for the ultimate level of personal involvement. Being a 31 years old, I have had time to try and test different experiences: from DJ-ing and building a sewerage as a construction worker and member of a handball representation of University (Belgrade) to being a government official, solder and Marie Curie PhD researcher at Imperial College London. My skills would not be unique but will broad: organic synthesis, public presentation, marketing and design, management.
