SynBio Business Basics

Are you interested in starting your own SynBio company?

The SynbiCITE SynBio Business Basics Course, 3rd – 5th July 2023

As part of SynbiCITE’s aim to drive the UK’s commercialisation of Synthetic Biology, we will be running our Synbio Business Basics course for academics, researchers, and students – we would particularly encourage those wanting to start-up a company in the area of synthetic biology (engineering biology), and related disciplines, to apply.

The course will be interactive and will focus on early-stage company development taught by experts. The topics covered will include, but are not limited to:

  • Setting up a company
  • IP
  • Business Plan
  • Funding
  • Market
  • Pitching

The course is designed for attendees who have either recently started companies or are in the process of forming a company in synthetic biology/engineering biology.

Ideally, each company attending the course will be represented by a team of two or three participants.

The course will be held on the South Kensington Campus, if you are interested and would like further information, please email
