02h Group launches Cambridge biotech bootcamp
o2h co-work labs, a business unit of o2h Group, has launched what it claims to be the first ever influencer biotech bootcamp covering representatives from the quintet influencer community that are the creative forces driving life science innovation.
The launch event will be held at the newly renovated the old Mill house at the Mill SciTech Park, where o2h co-work labs is building a community of creators covering life-science, technology and green innovation.
Looking far beyond start-up skills, the bootcamp brings together a dozen influencers covering the quintet of Scientists & Techies, Biotech CXO’s, Big Pharma, Academia/Profs & Govt, Incubators & Seed/VC’s looking to share live grassroots experiences and who have demonstrated a hard stake in shaping the future of life science.
The o2h co-work labs are looking for companies which have a fascination to learn from the candid hard experiences and deep expertise of others across the quintet.
Prashant Shah, CEO of o2h co-work Labs, said: “Biotech is a truly collaborative endeavour and we wanted to create a bootcamp to share grassroot experiences across the quintet of actors that are shaping biotech in Britain.
“The dozen attendees have been coined as the biotech dirty dozen as they will be proven in some small way in getting their hands dirty to help British biotech to flourish.
“We are delighted to mark the beginning of o2h co-work labs with this bootcamp to coincide with the completion of the renovation of Hauxton House, Mill SciTech Park which shall be its permanent home.”
