Lab Space, Seed Capital, Networking and Advice: Everything You Need to Launch Your Company!

Mission BioCapital (MBC), we love working with entrepreneurs like you. We and our partner life science incubators are constantly developing new ways to provide a launchpad for world-changing science.

As biotech entrepreneurs, you have unique needs: You need lab space fitted with state-of-the-art research equipment; professional support staff who can manage everything from EH&S training to proper handling of biohazard waste; office space for meetings with your team and potential investors; and a vibrant, collaborative space in which to share ideas and expertise with other exciting life science companies.

You also need capital to pay for those critical early experiments, the lawyers, the rent, the insurance. You need expertise and advice on what those critical early experiments should be. You need perspective on defining a meaningful roadmap for an early-stage biotech company.

The Platinum Program was designed to meet all these needs! Together with our partners, we aim to find high-opportunity early-stage biomedical innovations powered by enthusiastic teams and back them for the best possible chance for success.

The Platinum Program 2023 will award four to six winning startup-ups with:

• A guaranteed lab bench in one of Mission BioCapital’s affiliated incubators located in 13 cities in the U.S. and Europe (including Princeton Innovation Center and other BioLabs sites)
• $500,000 of seed capital per awardee*
• Strategic scientific and business development mentorship from experts across MBC’s corporate network, including Founding Sponsor Eli Lilly. 

*Opportunity for >$500,000 per award, depending on the quality of applications and at the sole discretion of Mission BioCapital. All awards will be made as SAFE investments.
