Mission BioCapital Platinum Program 2022

Lab space, seed capital, networking and advice: everything you need to launch your company!

Here at Mission BioCapital, 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: lab space fitted with state-of-the-art research equipment, professional support staff that 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 to share ideas and expertise with other exciting life science companies.

Through Golden Tickets, our partner incubators have provided biotech entrepreneurs with sponsored lab space to start and grow their companies. Now, we’re joining forces to fill the other critical need for launching your company, seed capital.

Introducing the Platinum Program, a paid 6-month incubation at our partner labs AND seed capital to fund those critical early experiments. Our inaugural 2022 Platinum Program has up to 4 spots available in our partner incubators in the San Francisco Bay Area AND up to $1M available in seed funding.

Team

Mission BioCapital strongly encourages under-represented founders to apply. If you identify as under-represented in the biotech industry please self-identify here*: (check boxes of the below)

*While we know that checking boxes can never fully capture the complexity of your identity, the above options are included because they have been identified in peer-reviewed literature and reports as identities and demographic that are measurably under-represented in the biotech industry. This list is not meant to be exhaustive. There are many other identities and demographics that are not widely discussed as under-represented, but we believe are important to support.
