PanaceaStars Ideation session: Building your sci-unicorn
Are you a science disruptor and innovator, aspiring to set-up your own startup? Do you want to learn how venture capitalists analyse deep science startups? Or do you just like free beer?

PanaceaStars is EMEA’s prominent deep science technology translation platform. With the support of partners such as McKinsey, J.A. Kemp, Bio-Rad, AstraZeneca and InnovateUK, amongst others, we invest time, resources and capital in exceptional scientists, academics and founders to de-risk and fast-track the development of their science towards commercialisation.

On the 4th April the PanaceaStars team will be at the St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford, delivering a seminar on building sci-unicorns, where we share with you the start-up journey, what it takes to build a successful company and the current trends in the ecosystem.

We will also give you a brief overview of PanaceaStars, sharing with you the different phases we have to offer depending on the stage of your company. In particular, we will dive into the details of our Development Phase, which enables early-stage founders to validate their preliminary data, de-risk their commercialisation strategy and refine their business offering and route to market; all whilst competing for a non-dilutive prize worth £100K.

You will then have plenty of opportunity to talk with our team afterwards over beer, wine and food!
