SUCCESSFUL NEW BUSINESSES
COMPANIES INVESTED IN
Revolutionising industry, pioneering medical technologies and transforming healthcare takes more than just a great idea and a can-do attitude. It takes a lot more. So, we designed a business accelerator programme specifically for life science entrepreneurs, based upon the Lean- Start Up approach and evidence-based entrepreneurialism.
Not just for start-ups and spin-offs, the BioCity Business Accelerator Programme works with entrepreneurs at every stage from idea to exit to help businesses to get off the ground, and continue to grow, entrepreneurially.
No fees, no shares, no equity and no board seats; we ask for nothing but commitment. Be assured, we will push you, we will ask a lot of you and it won’t be easy; but it will be worth it.
The BioCity Business Accelerator Programme is an intensive eight-week programme specifically designed to help scientific entrepreneurs launch and grow businesses from their science.
You will learn how to ‘Lean Start-up’, using a set of highly effective tools 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.
You will work one-to-one with your dedicated coach, attend workshops or complete activities weekly.
You will meet esteemed figures from the life science world who altruistically give their time as part of the BioCity Expert Network, to offer advice and guidance.
You will have a direct route to investment, pitching to investors on our expert panels, with the opportunity for the most promising ventures to go live on the BioCity co-investment platform.

Applicants join us and our partners for a 2.5 day pre-accelerator workshop, during which coaches introduce the key entrepreneurial techniques needed to scrutinise and develop new businesses. Entrepreneurs then have four weeks to use the tools, techniques and methods learnt, to undertake rigorous customer discovery to work on their idea and shape their business model. Following the four weeks of customer discovery, applicants present their work and pitch for one of the limited places on the BioCity Business Accelerator Programme.
Coaches work closely with every pioneer on the programme, so only the most promising ventures will gain a place.
