Join us for our Bioventures pitch session! Anyone who is interested in participating in the course is required to attend this session. You will pitch your own IP, or that from a TMC institution, and we will create teams for the course.
Bioventures is a unique entrepreneurship experience that has been a launchpad for two companies and has trained entrepreneurs who have joined or founded their own startups.
Any advanced degree students and trainees from across the Texas Medical Center who are interested in startups and want to have a truly hands-on experience are invited to participate. We’ve had Postdocs, PhDs, MBAs, MDs, and more come through this program.
This opportunity is a perfect follow up to Jack Gill’s life science entrepreneurship course. In Bioventures, teams will apply those concepts to bring an idea from nascent IP into a polished investor pitch. Participants will also hear detailed lectures from life science entrepreneurship experts and be mentored by some amazing local execs and leaders in the field. The winning team will raise enough money to incorporate their company and fuel further development.
Interested? Here is what you need to know:
