Advancing Leaders in Biotech,
Life Sciences & Healthcare


The Excellerator. – The World’s First International, Inter-Generational Leadership Summit Addressing The Gaps In The Biotechnology Sector

Following the success of our flagship annual event the GapSummit – The Excellerator is designed to tackle the current gap in leadership skills in the biotech and healthcare ecosystem by providing 100 outstanding participants from STEM backgrounds with the necessary tools and resources to spearhead the development of the global ecosystem.

We are looking for high-achieving, ambitious individuals from all over the world that aspire to take on leadership positions in their communities and advance their careers to make real-world impact. Excellerator applicants should be highly motivated, outside-of-the-box thinkers, with core leadership attributes, willing to learn from, engage with and challenge current leaders with the goal of creating positive impact in their professional field.

Applications for this year are now closed - Stay updated on our social media to see what this year's participants are up to!




The Academy aims at providing our participants with the tools and resources to become leaders in their fields and communities through a series of online masterclasses and guided self-learning. It focuses on 8 key learning areas: communication, negotiation, adaptation, culture, style, links, scales and ethics. The weekly time commitment for the Excellerator Academy is expected to be: - 45 minutes for the live masterclasses (please note the masterclasses are also recorded and made available after the live session); ~ 2-3 hours for the curated content that participants can go through at their own pace.



All participants interacted with world-renowned leaders in biotech, healthcare and life sciences. We welcomed different stakeholders from the ecosystem, including politicians, executives, founders, policy makers, journalists, etc. The Forum was based on three main pillars: Strategy, Management and Execution. The Forum was hosted from the 18th to the 20th of September 2023, at the University of Cambridge (UK).
