GBR was founded with the mission to inspire young innovators and entrepreneurs to become the next generation of leaders, ensuring the development and sustainability of the biotech industry. In continuing that mission we’re pleased to announce that we’ve got a fantastic team putting together our next GapSummit. They’re excited to share this message with the GBR community to get you thinking about the gaps in the biotech world and why you want to be at GapSummit 2018 to Challenge, Grow and Connect with Leaders of Today to bridge those gaps.
We are searching for 100 inspiring Leaders of Tomorrow: individuals who are both disruptive and innovative, with a passion for biotech and a drive for an impactful career.
Leaders of Tomorrow are competitively selected from across the world to attend a 3-day summit at The University of Cambridge, a world-leading hub for biotechnology, at the historic St John’s Old Divinity School from the 16th to the 18th of April 2018.
The summit has been purposefully structured to be highly interactive; we have secured numerous high-profile speakers who are leaders in their field, and who will not only share their experiences, but also engage in roundtable discussions and participate in small group activities with our attendees. In addition, personal leadership development workshops and mentoring opportunities will be provided throughout. We acknowledge that biotech is flourishing under an interdisciplinary umbrella, and networking opportunities are one of our top priorities with a series of social activities in the picturesque heart of Cambridge.
The Leaders of Tomorrow will also have the opportunity to participate in the ‘Voices of Tomorrow’ competition, where attendees are placed in teams and appointed an experienced mentor to develop a business idea. This hands-on experience helps the acquisition of new skills and selected teams will pitch in front of a panel of expert judges, culminating with the chance to win seed-funding and continued mentorship from leading innovators and entrepreneurs. Previous editions have seen spin outs of numerous successful ventures by our Leaders of Tomorrow.
Are you in the field of biotech and/or life sciences and want to become a Leader of Tomorrow? Then start thinking about applying for GapSummit2018, where you’ll learn how to develop an initial idea into an impactful start-up and build up a network of people with complementary skills that will help you on your way!
Applications open on the 1st of September 2017.
