iGEM Startup Showcase 2020
November 20, 2020 @ 8:30 am - November 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
The Entrepreneurship Program Innovation Community (EPIC) supports the development of iGEMs entrepreneurial community. The vision of the program is to become the driving force behind hundreds of SynBio based start-ups globally to help accelerate our transition to a more sustainable bioeconomy. The core of the program is focused on supporting iGEMers by connecting them to relevant co-founders, mentors, accelerators, investors and partners. This is done through a range of activities globally including the Venture Creation Labs, Mentorship Program, Fast Track Program and the Annual Startup Showcase.
We will be hosting a day of keynotes, panels, pitch competitions and workshops – celebrating iGEM Biofounders success in challenges of Food, Health and Environment.
We have scouted across 100’s of talented founders to find the top 15 iGEM Biofounders of 2020.
