Building a Biotech Venture
Building a Biotech Venture is a 3-phase program designed for Medicine by Design trainees who would like to translate their regenerative medicine research into a sustainable, successful venture.

H2i is proud to support Medicine by Design trainees who are looking to translate their cutting edge research into an impactful venture through this in-depth 3-phase program.

Phase 1: Team Building

Team Building

Trainees will attend an introductory event to learn more about the program and have a chance to connect with the community. They will then be supported in the process of building a team of 3-5 members who are all driven subject matter experts eager to translate their research.

Phase 2: Venture and Pitch Building

Venture and Pitch Building

Teams will have a chance to begin building their venture and pitches in an interactive, guided workshop. Teams are also invited to join the H2i community to access our multiple program streams. From Accelera sessions to one-on-one mentorship, trainees will learn to shape their ideas into effective, impactful ventures.

Phase 3: Pitch Competition

Pitch Competition

At the culmination of this program in spring 2021, teams will have a chance to pitch for up to $25,000 in non-dilutive funding.
