Apply to pitch

The general application to pitch for Ideation 2019 has now closed. Teams chosen to pitch will be notified shortly.

Information for audience members: You do not have to be part of a pitching team to attend Ideation. Each year, Ideation has around 300 audience members who can listen to the pitches and talk to the pitching teams and biotech entrepreneurship resources in the networking session. For more information and to RSVP, visit our Ideation 2019 page.

Information for teams: Teams will pitch for 2 minutes each in front of Ideation attendees and judges. Teams will receive written feedback from judges and will get the chance to present their work in more detail and talk to potential collaborators at a networking session following the event. More logistics will be sent teams once they are selected to pitch. Please note that those teams that are not selected to pitch will still be invited to participate in the event, as well as set up a station for the networking portion.
