Co-founder hub
Overview

"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.

Manchester, United Kingdom + intro

Brief intro
Through reaching the finals and creating an award winning business plan as MD for our company idea within the Biotech YES scheme, my insight into the biotech industry began. From then on, I have worked as an intellectual property fellow at UMIP, and as part of OBR's consultancy team being exposed to a wide array of scientific research, and the necessary and complex pathways through to commercialisation. As a scientist I enjoy understanding and analysing the research, but more recently, I have developed and transferred these skills for more commerce-oriented outcomes. I will bring my current understanding and abilities to any team, and put my all into the business and look forward to working with other like-minded people.
