Can you see yourself as part of a team where current and past members have become successful startup founders, investment professionals, and innovation-focussed academics and clinicians?
Recently as a local branch IFO have run a packed roster of events, including creating a bespoke mentoring and training programme for female entrepreneurs (WE-ACE); running a series of interactive workshops to support and train scientists considering the journey to commercialising an innovation (ACE Saturdays 2019/20 and 2020/21); and organising a major scientific conference (Innovation in Genomics).
If you are anywhere on the spectrum, from intrigued to already passionate about science innovation, this is your opportunity to join IFO and create value. We are excited to announce that we are recruiting and you could be part of our IFO team–you can meet the current team here. We are looking for motivated, pro-active academics (MBA, PhD, Postdoc), clinicians and entrepreneurs with a passion for innovation and a curiosity for exploring the interface between academia/healthcare and entrepreneurship.
