ACCELERATE@BABRAHAM START-UP COMPETITION: INAUGURAL WINNERS REVEAL THEIR PROGRAMME HIGHLIGHTS

After a challenging selection process and a highly competitive pitch contest, five science start-ups were awarded £20k and access to the Babraham Research Campus’ bio-incubator facilities, Accelerate@Babraham. In addition, a spin-out from the Babraham Institute, SNPr was invited to attend the programme.

The winning ventures - Antiverse, Qkine, VisusNano, Oppilotech and Kalium Diagnostics – plus SNPr, spent three months on the Campus, from September to December 2018, receiving 1-2-1 mentoring from world-class scientific and business experts, bespoke training sessions and access to the Babraham Research Campus’ highly experienced life science, healthcare and investor networks.

Further feedback from the programme - the first of its kind to offer laboratory space, mentoring and a cash-prize, in Cambridge - has been overwhelmingly positive, with the start-ups reporting successful prototype builds, refined business plans and further international award success.

The winners’ package also included the use of communal equipped laboratory space, flexible workspace within the Campus’ stimulating and supportive environment and access to the community hub, which includes office, meeting and social spaces.

Although the three-month programme is now complete, the start-ups report that they are ready to take their ideas to the next stage and that the networks and relationships they have developed in the past three months will have long-lasting benefits.
