Bio-spark is an entrepreneurial programme within healthcare that helps early stage scientists (PhD and Postdoc) in Cambridge make an informed decision about careers in business and enterprise. It provides networking opportunities, scientific challenges and mentorship from Pharma/Biotech/Venture partner companies. This is a “learn by experience” programme, and runs alongside PhD and Postdoc responsibilities.
There will be three types of Bio-spark fellows selected:
- Exploring fellows who only wish to experience the networking opportunities with partner companies.
- Challenge-solving fellows who wish to have additional engagement with partner companies through solving challenges, in groups. To view the list of challenges, please click here.
- Company-seeding fellows who have ideas for setting up companies and need mentoring and funding opportunities.
Bio-spark is funded and driven by our company partners:
