This Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (IBBE) Showcase and Pitch Event is an opportunity for entrepreneurs with start-up, early stage and growth businesses to increase their profile in front of a national audience of investors. The pitching competition is organised jointly by CBMNet, BIOCATNET & the Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and is a unique opportunity for both entrepreneurs and investors to gain valuable insight.
KTN is partnering with CBMNet and BIOCATNET to organise an Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy Showcase and Pitch Event.
Industrial biotechnology (IB) involves using biological resources – such as plants, algae, or micro-organisms – to produce and process materials, chemicals(including pharmaceuticals) and energy. Through the development of bioenergy solutions, it has the potential to reduce dependency on petrochemicals and help the UK to become a low carbon economy.
KTN and two BBSRC Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy – CBMNet (Crossing Biological Membranes Network) and BIOCATNET (Biocatalyst Discovery, Development, and Scale-up) – are joining forces to provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs with start-up, early stage and growth businesses to increase their profile in front of a national audience of investors. The Industrial Biotechnology Showcase and Pitch Event will take place on Tuesday 12th June 2018 in London.
This pitching opportunity is open to UK spin-outs and start-ups who are seeking investment (seed through to post revenue) and who are working in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (IBBE).
The deadline to apply to pitch is 28th February 2018.
