We will get a first-hand look into Illumina's Accelerator to see how companies are nurtured from initial ideas to creating organizations that drive value. In the age of accelerating innovation in the genomic space, this panel of genomics startup founders will reflect on their path, the key lessons they learned along the way and tips & tricks they wished they knew when they were just starting out. They will discuss topics ranging from how the idea came together for starting a company, finding co-founders with complementary skills, hiring first employees, getting funding, recruiting advisors, all the way to creating a go to market strategy.
This event is a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of how ideas are transferred into ventures. Our panelists include Emma Taylor from Naked Biome, Ridhi Tariyal from NextGen Jane, Christine Du from Algen Biotechnologies, and Alice Crisci from Medanswers and Stephanie Tagliatela from Encoded Genomics. Our host will be Amanda Cashin the Head of Illumina Accelerator. Come join us for this exciting event!
