About the GapSummit
GapSummit is an annual volunteer-led, world-class biotechnology leadership summit which aims to highlight pressing challenges facing the bio-economy, and build bridges within and across generations of leaders to solve them. The GapSummit programme includes panels, keynotes and workshops that center on core “gaps” to be addressed in future decades, as well as the ‘Voices of Tomorrow’ bio-entrepreneurship competition. At the conclusion of the conference, our attendees, or ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’, will acquire a holistic understanding of these challenges and have the mindsets, skillset, and networks needed to address them. Learn more about all aspects of the GapSummit below!
Leaders of Tomorrow
Leaders of Tomorrow are high-achieving, up-and-coming individuals who come from across the world and work in disciplines ranging from the biological sciences to business and policymaking. 100 Leaders of Tomorrow are selected through a rigorous selection process to attend the GapSummit, where they are challenged and empowered to develop into socially responsible and driven individuals who can ideate innovative solutions to today’s challenges.
Voices of Tomorrow Competition
The Voices of Tomorrow is an entrepreneurial bio-innovation competition where Leaders of Tomorrow are organised into small teams to develop scientifically and economically feasible solutions to important challenges in the three months prior to GapSummit. During this time, teams are also given the opportunity to expand their horizons through virtual fireside chats and panel discussions and to develop their ideas with the help of experienced business mentors.
