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.

Brief intro
I have a passion for problem solving and coming up with effective long term solutions. Currently, I am in the 2nd year of my PhD in Cancer biology. My work involves investigating and validating biomarkers for chemoresistance in ovarian cancer. In addition to this I have worked as a consultant for a charity where I was involved in developing an Evidence Gap Map for Glaucoma Patients. This helped broaden my understanding of what goes into helping patients make decisions regarding personalized treatment options.
In my spare time I like to indulge in learning how to code and improve my statistical skills ( beyond teaching undergrads).
I am interested in getting involved in a startup and would love to offer what I have learnt over the years in research/academia and consulting.

Brief intro
I conducted research on cardiovascular disease and carbon nanotubes in high school, leading to my biomedical engineering research and thesis developing actuated cilia for artificial arteries to treat cardiovascular disease. Recognizing the gap between developing these innovative technologies and getting them to the patients who need them, I pivoted to business.

I spent 5 years is commercial strategy and operations consulting, where I worked across the payer, provider, life sciences, and other industries. My role spanned financial modeling, operations, business model development, strategy, design thinking, and more. I started a service offering within my firm, and grew a startup data analytics group over a year, where I managed teams and clients.
