last modified Jul 29, 2016 09:40 AM

Interested in working in the world of biotech start-ups? A new programme called Deep Science Ventures works with PhD graduates to create high-tech startups from scratch even if you haven’t yet found the right idea or team.


Deep Science Ventures is a fully funded, full time programme which works with scientists to make the transition from technical expert to founder of a high-tech start-up. They accept up to 60 PhDs, PostDocs and industry scientists onto a six month programme twice per year, help you to identify the match between your passions and real world opportunities and build a team of like-minded people across a range of disciplines. By the end of the programme approximately 50% of people will have found market and technical viability, been provided with pre-seed investment and well on their way to making an impact on the world, whilst the other 50% continue on to other commercial or academic roles having gained a huge amount of experience and built an incredible network.

Applications are open now for the October 2016 cohort. Find out more at:

The Deep Science Ventures team also run a wide range of events designed to help scientists make the transition to high-tech start-ups.
