Winning early-career researchers excel in entrepreneurship
Date:12/6/2011

ondon, teams competed at 5 regional heats across the country. This year, for the first time, one of these heats was hosted by an industrial sponsor, the agri-business Syngenta, at their Jealott's Hill site. This gave participants the opportunity to learn about the commercialisation of science from the perspective of a large agri-business company expanding the career horizons beyond academia.

This year's winning team of four early-career researchers emerged from the 390 competitors across all of the regional heats. Their Managing Director, Ben Owens, said "We're delighted to have won. We formed our team especially for the competition we didn't all know each other before and it has been an incredible journey.

"It has been great to develop a diverse range of skills outside of the lab and I know these are going to be invaluable for the rest of my career. The competition has made me think completely differently about how academic research can be translated to a commercial environment and has given me the confidence to think that researchers can do it themselves take your own research forward to create a viable business. It's really unique to have this kind of opportunity and I really encourage all early-career researchers to get involved."

Professor Sir Tom Blundell, Chair of BBSRC and after dinner speaker at the Biotechnology YES 2011 final said "Congratulations to the winners and to all of the finalists. I have had the pleasure to be involved with Biotechnology YES for many of its sixteen years and the participants' entrepreneurial skills seem to improve year on year.

"It is clear when speaking to the participants that they have many exciting ideas for commercialising their science whilst having also spent an enormous amount of time and effort developing an understanding of the principles of finance, marketing and intellectual property. These will be an invaluable asset in their future careers and I wish them the best."
