Mentorship Evening – held on Feb 9th 2022

February 25th 2022

Oxford Science Enterprises Grassroots were delighted to accommodate this ‘Mentorship Evening’ within our Workspace on the evening of Feb. 9th.

Catalyse Oxford is a biotech entrepreneurship programme run in collaboration between the Oxford University Biotech Society (OUBT) and SynBioUK.

Over the course of 8 weeks, students are developing biotech business ideas in teams.

The programme began in January with team formation events, which have been followed by a series of workshops on the main aspects of building a biotech start-up.

Teams had the opportunity to receive personalised mentorship at the ‘Mentorship Evening’ event at Grassroots on Wednesday.

The fantastic group of mentors, who have diverse backgrounds and bring experience across a range of biotech sectors, helped teams with evaluating their ideas and directions to pursue, building viable business plans and IP advice.

The programme will culminate in a weekend-long sprint (Biohackathon) for teams to finalise their ideas, business plans and pitches.

Teams will then pitch to a panel of judges, with prizes for the winning teams.
