OneStart: Your chance to win US$150k to realize your biotech business idea

Do you have an idea to solve a critical problem healthcare? Or do you have
the scientific or business know-how to help someone else develop their idea?
The Oxbridge Biotech Roundtable (OBR) and SR One, the venture capital arm of
GlaxoSmithKline, have teamed up again for the OneStart competition - the
biotech startup accelerator programme in the world - to offer young
innovators from all disciplines the chance to win US$150k with free lab space
and ongoing legal and business advice from our sponsors to transform their
ideas into a successful business.

Applications are now open until December 1st, 2014. To learn more about the
programme and start building your team, visit

Who should participate?
·       Science/medical students and researchers interested in spinning out
their research or commercializing their ideas
·       Business students and young professionals keen to get involved in
the biotech and healthcare industries
·       Software developers and engineers interested in contributing their
technical skills to realising a product
·       Anyone interested in entrepreneurship

You do not need to have a team yet, or even have your own idea, as you can
register now at our Co-founder Hub (and Discussion Forum) to find teammates
to complement your strengths, show your interest to join other teams. Ideas
at all stages of development are welcome. All semi-finalists will be directly
mentored by experienced industry professionals for at least six weeks, and
invited to attend a biotech business bootcamp in San Francisco in February
2015 with
workshops from our global sponsors, including SR One, Johnson & Johnson
Innovation, Roche, McKinsey, and others.

We look forward to meeting you in person or via
