Neotherix CEO Dr Mike Raxworthy has been invited to act as one of the judges for the Yorkshire and Humber Bioscience Young Entrepreneur Scheme (YES) competition. This is a Yorkshire Forward-funded competition designed to raise awareness of the potential for commercialising bioscience ideas among postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers working at universities in Yorkshire and Humberside. Teams will develop business plans with the help of mentors over two days and then pitch to the judging panel (who will be taking the role of venture capitalists). Winning teams will be selected to progress to the final in London in December.
This is the third year Mike has acted as a judge for Bioscience YES and he has also served as a mentor and presented a case study in the development of Neotherix' tissue scaffolds in previous competitions.
