Join Innovation Forum Oxford at the Oxford BioEscalator for the launch of IMAGINE IF! 2020

About this Event

Do you have a scientific idea with the potential to become an entrepreneurial success?

How would bespoke mentorship from leaders in the Oxford ecosystem–tailored to both your needs and timetable–propel your idea to the next stage?

What if you had the opportunity to pitch at the global IMAGINE IF! competition in Barcelona to a panel of international investors?

Join Innovation Forum Oxford at the Oxford BioEscalator for the launch of IMAGINE IF! 2020 on March 5th. The evening will feature talks from previous IMAGINE IF! finalists and mentors as well as the opportunity to network with likeminded innovators and businesses from the Oxford area.

About ImagineIF! 2020

IMAGINE IF! is a global accelerator with a dedicated program of mentorship and the opportunity to pitch to an investor panel to win non-dilutive capital and six-month’s lab space. The competition is run by Innovation Forum as Local Finals tied to Innovation Forum branches (like Oxford) and a Global Final of winners from across the globe.

IMAGINE IF! is unique in providing a tailored mentoring program to all local finalists to develop entrepreneurial ideas and pitches with the seasoned expertise of those who have seen this journey many times. Oxford finalists will also be particularly well-supported with access to our successful ACE-Saturday workshops.
