Apply by December 1st, 2014 for the chance to win £100k (€125k) as well as free lab space. Do you have an idea, an entrepreneurial opportunity or have you already started? Discover why you should participate.
Their homepage alone (oxbridgebiotech.com/onestart) should be enough to convince you. Money and first-class partners, it is already an important opportunity. The success of previous semi-finalist and finalist teams adds even more credibility to the initiative. 12 teams from the 2014 competition have already raised follow-on funding. This 2015 edition is now the third one, the most solid and ambitious one ever organized.
The accelerator is split into two streams that run in parallel, one for the Americas and one for Europe and the rest of the World, awarding €125k to the respective top team. It is free to apply and prizes are non-dilutive.
