At GBR, we bridge the gap between the aspirations of young leaders and the talent education, management, and recruitment needs of the industry. Our mission is to cultivate a culture of talented, connected, and collaborative bio-leaders who are equipped with the skills and mindset to shape the future.
Who We Are
Global Biotech Revolution (GBR) is a youth-led nonprofit organisation focused on inspiring and developing the next generation of leaders in biotech. Founded in 2012 by two PhD students at the University of Cambridge, GBR remains entirely led by volunteers passionate about the future of the biotech industry and the impact young leaders can make. GBR proudly runs two flagship events, the GapSummit* and the Excellerator*, which gather 100 young leaders highly competitively selected from around the world alongside 60+ top industry leaders (CEOs, Nobel laureates, entrepreneurs, policymakers, etc.). Beyond our flagship events, we also work on initiatives to further engage and develop our global alumni community of 700+ young leaders as they progress in their careers. We also work to support entrepreneurial activities in our community and spark new collaborations, as well as develop regional biotech hubs through our Ambassador network.
