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
Following a solid academic grounding in bioscience research, I have spent the last few years in commercial technology development, principally software development in a variety of scientific and engineering domains. I enjoy working in small, dynamic teams to bring new ideas and products to life, and have experience in project management and in recruiting and supervising others. My industrial experience has also given me some insight into how things work in the commercial world, including such areas as intellectual property, engineering and design, manufacturing and sales channels.

I believe my technical and supervisory experience would make me a good fit for a role such as CTO in a biotech startup, or a solid addition with commercial experience in a digital health or medtech project.

Matthew Hahn
Berkeley, United States + intro

Brief intro
It was a passion for seeing technology and engineering solve problems that drove me towards studying biomedical engineering as an undergrad. While spending the last seven years in military service, I saw how simple solutions solved real world problems. Additionally, I learned how to achieve goals, which are not always quantifiable, by leveraging the strengths and talents of individual contributors. I am now a graduate student, pursuing degrees in business administration and public health. I'm most passionate about improving on a solution to neonatal jaundice using phototherapy by creating a simply designed product, helping lower costs and make treatment more widely available.
