Take your first steps toward entrepreneurship with the Building a Biotech Venture program, where regenerative medicine or precision medicine-focused trainee teams learn from industry experts to develop their venture concepts, create a pitch deck and business canvas, and set milestones for building their company.

Applications are open until October 17th, 2023, 11:59 PM EST.

This program aims to support the next generation of researchers as they take their first steps toward building their technology into a product or venture.

Through this program, teams will:

  • Learn how to think about their research in terms of a product or business;
  • Build a business canvas and develop their product or venture concept;
  • Receive guidance from industry experts on intellectual property, clinical translation, and early-stage stage investment, and preclinical experimental de-risking.
  • Create a pitch deck and receive coaching on telling their venture story; and
  • Receive regular mentoring from industry experts and entrepreneurs throughout the process.

The program will culminate in a pitch competition in March 2024, where the top teams will receive up to $25,000 (first place) and $10,000 (second place) in research funding to advance their venture.

Medicine by Design runs this program in partnership with Precision Medicine Initiative (PRiME), the Health Innovation Hub (H2i), and Talk Boutique.
