The BioHub Birmingham® hosts BioBrum 2017 national life science event


Posted on 18 January 2017 (Permalink)

The BioHub Birmingham®, Birmingham’s flagship life sciences incubator, is hosting its first BioBrum Life Science event on 16 February, with the support of WMAHSN. 

Aimed at pre-revenue life science companies, the free event will include talks on finance, intellectual property, effective use of professional networks and business development.  There will also be an opportunity for one-to-one advice sessions with IP, finance and business planning specialists.

The event will be held at the Birmingham Research Park, which houses a community of research-led companies and is the home of The BioHub.  All eligible companies registering for the event will have the opportunity to win six months free laboratory space at The BioHub, and complementary business assistance provided by the Enterprise Acceleration team at the University of Birmingham. We are looking for highly disruptive and innovative approaches, and the projects will be judged on how novel they are, as well as their long term commercial potential.

The BioHub is nestled amongst a vibrant life science community including the University of Birmingham, and two leading NHS hospitals - together with their associated centres of clinical and research excellence. The BioHub provides facilities for incubation and growth of life science companies from proof of concept stage to fully fledged, commercially competitive businesses.

The BioHub provides access to top quality shared biomedical lab equipment and desk space at a fraction of commercial rates.  A negotiable, all inclusive, monthly rate allows the fledgling life science companies to work towards reaching a commercially competitive stage. 

The BioHub has an enviable geographic position at the heart of the Edgbaston Medical Quarter, and benefits from the superb transport links provided by the dedicated University railway station and free parking.  The BioHub residents can also benefit from the expertise, facilities and equipment at the University of Birmingham.
