Panacea Innovation is committed to inspiring entrepreneurship among young scientists from all backgrounds, with the mission of maximising the translation of health and life sciences innovation.
Among our initiatives comes BioStars, our flagship Startups booster, aimed at enabling the bio-entrepreneurs of tomorrow to turn their scientific ideas into actual products.
During the past couple of years, BioStars has helped more than 65 small-team startups, supporting them through intensive mentoring and training, enabling them to rapidly progress their business plans and ideas. Towards the end of the program, many had game-changing potential and some reached a degree of proof-of-principle, raising interest among the investment community. We were able to see that translating biotech from bench to clinic can happen in months rather than years. Look what our latest winner has just achieved!
