Join Medicine by Design on November 3rd for an information session to learn about the Building a Biotech Venture Program.

Take your first steps toward entrepreneurship with the Building a Biotech Venture program, a program for trainees who are doing regenerative medicine- or precision medicine-related research in labs at the University of Toronto or its affiliated hospitals.

Medicine by Design is offering this program in partnership with Precision Medicine Initiative (PRiME) as well as foundational partners: Health Innovation Hub (H2i), a campus-linked accelerator at the Temerty Faculty of Medicine; and Talk Boutique.

Through a series of workshops over winter/spring 2023, 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.
-Create a pitch deck and receive coaching on telling their venture story; and
-Receive regular mentoring from entrepreneurs throughout the process.

The program will culminate in a pitch competition in April 2023, where the first-place team will receive $25,000 and the second-place team will receive $10,000 in research funding to advance their product concept.
