OneStart – Idea Competition for Bio-Entrepreneurs – Deadline is 12/1
OneStart is an idea competition/accelerator programme designed to inspire, encourage and assist the next generation of bio-entrepreneurs. Teams or individuals with health care-related business ideas at all stages of development are encouraged to apply. This is not restricted to just drugs, any ideas that relate to the life sciences and health care are welcome: devices, software, diagnostics, therapeutics, etc.
The competition facilitates the introduction and networking of talented individuals (aged 35 and younger) with complementary skillsets and the passion to move ideas forward. Whether you are an individual with an idea or a small team looking to grow, we welcome you to apply, to attend our events and get connected to our pool of talented individuals.
Johnson & Johnson Innovation is very pleased to announce that is again joining forces with the Oxbridge Biotech Roundtable to support OneStart. They were very impressed with the entrants last year and we’re excited to be helping budding entrepreneurs launch their business ideas to improve peoples’ lives around the world.
The vision at Johnson & Johnson Innovation is to positively impact human health through innovation. They do this by working side-by-side with innovators throughout their journey, and as such, we’re continuing to work with three exceptional finalist teams from the last competition – DJS Antibodies, Floceleris and Helix Nanotechnologies. This goes to show that there is a lot of value in this programme beyond just the £100k grand prize.
Johnson & Johnson Innovation hopes that you will submit your idea this year so that our team and our fellow global partners SR One, Takeda Ventures, Bristol-Myers Squibb, GSK, Roche, and McKinsey & Company will have a chance to hear about your vision at the Bootcamp, no matter how early-stage your idea is.
You’ve got just 3 weeks till the deadline for the first round online application on Monday December 1, 2014, so learn more now at the OneStart website.
