I spent the morning listening to amazing presentations by top up-and-coming scientists at the Entrepreneurship Lab NYC pitch event (www.elabnyc.com). I was honored to spend a morning several months ago lecturing a number of the carefully selected presenters who were capping off a 6-month training and mentorship program sponsored by the Bloomberg Administration, which is really working to strengthen biotech research in New York City. The program description is below.
Presenters from Cornell-Weill, Memorial Sloan Kettering, Harvard and others talked about promising new developments for diabetes, Parkinson’s and other brain disorders, histology, schizophrenia and autism and obesity, among others. Great program to help those of us who have found the opportunity to do well by doing good.
Here’s their mission: Bio & Health Tech Entrepreneurship Lab NYC is a prestigious 6-month training and mentorship program for aspiring entrepreneurs in New York City’s life sciences and healthcare technology community. The Lab provides extensive support to graduate students of science, post-docs, early-career researchers and engineers interested in forming new biotech and health tech ventures.
The program was launched by the Bloomberg Administration and New York City Economic Development Corporation, and is led by a team of experienced entrepreneurs.
