The BioCity Accelerator Programme is continually oversubscribed therefore, applicants are invited to first join our Pre-Accelerator Workshop. Explore the commercial viability of your idea with the BioCity coaches, mentors and investment team. Applying the tools and techniques learnt during the 3 day workshop, you’ll then spend 4 weeks in customer discovery shaping your business model, before returning to pitch for one of the limited number of places on our programme.
About the programme:
The BioCity Accelerator Programme is free to attend and runs over 8 weeks. Learn how to ‘Lean Start-up’, a set of highly effective tools and processes specifically tailored to the healthcare and life sciences industry. Learn how to identify gaps in your business, evaluate risks and create a business model that stands-up to the scrutiny of potential investors, partners and customers. Once a week you will be required to either meet with your dedicated coach, attend a lesson or complete an activity. We’ll introduce you to our network of key industry figures, senior executives, investors and entrepreneurial peers throughout the programme so you hit the ground running. This programme is support by the East Midlands Academic Health Science Network.
