OneBio's First Incubation Programme


OneBio will be hosting its first incubator programme and is open for applications. 

The programme only requires participants to be in Cape Town for 3 weeks in total, allowing participants to manage existing obligations. 

The programme will run over 6 months, delivered via virtual workshops, expert coaching sessions, tailored online content and three in-person bootcamps in Cape Town. The incubation programme is free of charge, is equity free and valued at over R350,000 per business. During contact weeks, businesses will have access to lab facilities and co-working space, undertake excursions, be inspired at fireside chats, and be introduced to potential partners and funders. Co-working and lab-space will be available for startups in both Cape Town and Bulawayo. The programme will culminate in a demo day, where entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch to local investors.

Who should apply

Applications are open for biotech entrepreneurs that are late in the research cycle and early in the product cycle, typically scientists with a great concept but needing the business acumen and support to fully get the concept off the ground. 

Deadline for online applications: 10 March 2019
