The Journal of Commercial Biotechnology is launching a life sciences business plan competition for very young life sciences companies and for student teams who have placed at other competitions.
Recognizing that life science companies have unique attributes that are not recognized by traditional business plan competitions, the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology established an international life sciences business plan competition to enable life science companies to compete on equal terms, and to highlight promising emerging companies that may not otherwise receive sufficient attention.
The competition seeks to promote innovation in the life sciences by providing entrepreneurs with access to funding, supportive resources, and commercial guidance, and by helping investors and other stakeholders connect with emerging business leaders.
The competition is open to very early stage life science companies and to competitors with life science business plans who have placed in other business plan competitions. Entries are due March 1st 2013. For more details, see http://jcbcompetition.thinkbiotech.com/ .
