Startup School

Startup School for genomics and biodata

Learn to think like an entrepreneur in a highly supportive environment for early-stage genomes and biodata innovation arising from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the European Bioinformatics Institute.

Why? Because we all share the same mission to help improve healthcare and lives.

Our lean Startup School is designed for genomics and biodata scientists but we also welcome participants from related disciplines and those whose skills and expertise can help enrich, diversify, and launch the early ideas generated by each cohort from both institutes.
