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.

Business
Boston, United States + intro

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.

I'm currently studying for my Masters Mechanical Engineering, and am also a prospective PhD student.

I have extensive experience in bio-medical engineering research, focusing on computational modelling of cardiovascular biomechanics, as well as cardiovascular medical device design.
