Biohackathon

The 2021 OUBT Biohackathon is taking place virtually from the 5th to the 8th of March. This 4 day event is for students from all subjects to take a biotech idea all the way from conception to a VC pitch. We provide students with the tools to find a driven team, develop the idea and then present their innovation to our panel of experienced judges, including professional venture capitalists, with a cash prize for the winning team.

On Friday and Saturday (5th and 6th March) there will be talks from leaders and visionaries in the biotech fields to both inspire our students about the breadth of possibilities in the biotech industry and upgrade their pitching skills. Students will also be supported by teams of mentors present, who are experienced biotech professionals and will be guiding teams as they iterate through the design process and develop business plans.
