> Hello Prof. Hickernell,
> It is Sybil again. My team members and I emailed over a month ago to ask for your help with spreading the news about OneStart, a programme to encourage students, postdocs and researchers across all disciplines to get involved in life science entrepreneurship, with a grand prize of $150k and free lab space.
> The application deadline is December 1st, 2014, so we would be really grateful if you could send out the information below to your community at the Illinois Institute of Technology once again to remind them to apply.
> Thank you so much for your time and attention!

> Apply by December 1st for a chance to win $150k to realise your business idea
> Do you have an idea to solve a critical problem in healthcare? Or do you have the scientific or business know-how to help someone else develop their idea?
> The Oxbridge Biotech Roundtable (OBR) and SR One, the venture capital arm of GlaxoSmithKline, have teamed up again for the OneStart <http://www.oxbridgebiotech.com/onestart> competition - the largest life sciences / health care startup accelerator programme in the world - to offer young innovators from all disciplines the chance to win $150k with free lab space, and ongoing legal and business advice from our sponsors to transform their ideas into a successful business.
> Applications are now open until December 1st, 2014. To learn more about the programme and start building your team, visit oxbridgebiotech.com/onestart <http://www.oxbridgebiotech.com/onestart>.
> Who should participate?
> · Science/medical students and researchers interested in spinning out their research or commercializing their ideas
> · Business students and young professionals keen to get involved in the biotech and healthcare industries
> · Software developers and engineers interested in contributing their technical skills to realising a product
> · Anyone interested in entrepreneurship
> You do not need to have a team yet, or even have your own idea, as you can register now at our Co-founder Hub <http://onestart.co/cofounders> (and Discussion Forum) to find teammates to complement your strengths, show your interest to join other teams.
> Ideas at all stages of development are welcome. All semi-finalists will be directly mentored by experienced industry professionals for at least six weeks, and invited to attend a biotech business bootcamp in San Francisco in February 2015 with workshops from our global sponsors, including SR One, Johnson & Johnson Innovation, Takeda Ventures, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Roche, McKinsey, and others.
> We look forward to meeting you in person or via oxbridgebiotech.com/onestart <http://www.oxbridgebiotech.com/onestart>.
> If you have any questions at all, please do get in touch via sybil.wong at oxbridgebiotech.com <mailto:sybil.wong at oxbridgebiotech.com>. We would be happy to answer your questions about OneStart and help you move science forward to benefit human health.
