The BioEscalator’s inaugural Pitch Battle contest was held digitally at the pizza social on 17 April.
Eleven pitches in total were delivered by our innovative companies here in Oxfords medical research district, covering the broad range of drug discovery, drug development and diagnostics work being undertaken at the BioEscalator.
Congratulations to MiroBio who won the overall best pitch prize with Juliane Schwaderer, Chris Lynch and Sara de Silva delivering a slick overview of their work on harnessing the immune system’s natural control mechanisms to combat auto-immune diseases.
Other prizes were awarded to Nucleome Therapeutics for best Covid-19 response, Ochre Bio’s Jack O’Meara for best speaker, BioArchitech for best video/graphics & best joke, Theolytics for most likely future unicorn, PepGen for best explanation of technology & Ervaxx for most mentions of the BioEscalator - well done to Andrew Fadden for cramming in as many as he did!
Four of these companies have now been put through to the Pitch Finale which will be held digitally on 15 May in collaboration with BIO international and generously supported by Santander Universities UK. We’re looking forward to a great event.
