Do you have an idea for a biotech or healthcare venture that you’d like to develop? Would you like to work on that idea with a group of like-minded peers? Are you interested in joining a startup team? The next Venture Creation Weekend (VCW) offers an exciting opportunity to translate your idea, application or innovation into a real venture with the support of mentors from AstraZeneca and industry experts from the Cambridge ecosystem.

The programme for the weekend includes an exciting blend of keynote speeches, mentoring sessions, pitching with feedback from judges.

Our partner, AstraZeneca, is supporting entrepreneurship through mentoring at the upcoming VCW. In our short video interview, Dr Hitesh Sanganee, Director, Emerging Innovations, Scientific Partnering & Alliances, AstraZeneca said, “Over the weekend they (the mentors) will be running mini clinics, helping answer questions, coming up with different problems which they (the entrepreneurs) might want to address as part of their business plan, helping provide solutions.”
