Founders to watch awards

Nominate yourself or someone else by October 1st. Winners will be featured at the summit and receive 1:1 coaching and mentorship.

The Founders to Watch Award honors emerging CEOs who are tackling complex challenges at the intersection of biology and technology.

Recipients are founders you’ll want to follow over the next few years — they’re disruptors with an eye on impact. Each recipient will receive 1:1 coaching and mentorship from experienced biotech founders, as well as the opportunity to host a flash talk during Founder-Led Bio Week. From human health to sustainability, we invite you to apply or to nominate a founder who is transforming biotech by October 1, 2021.


Who should apply?

We encourage bio founders to apply – or be nominated – who are early in their startup journey and have not yet raised a Series A.
