best in genomics the missing link
BEST in genomics ! The missing link …

BEST is a combination of four generic activities :

– awareness

– education

– training

– business model development

However, awareness appears as one of the missing links in entrepreneurship education and venture creation / development.

best in genomics objectives
BEST in genomics ! Objectives
  • to foster, analyze and maximize the knowledge translation of scientific innovations into commercially relevant outputs
  • specifically, how to create and capture value from biotech and genomics research
  • to bring together all stakeholders (academia, public and private) in supporting these scientific entrepreneurs and their projects
  • how to translate these discoveries into marketable applications, products, technologies, systems and processes.

best in genomics means
BEST in genomics ! Means
  • Identifying all those active, latent and potential intra- and entrepreneurs in genomics
  • providing them with the necessary entrepreneurial skills required to succeed
  • helping researchers and their projects by understanding the processes and players involved in commercialization
  • optimizing the availability of expertises from all stakeholders from Québec and Atlantic (universities, research centers, UTTS/IULO, industry-led clusters, private firms)
  • building an embedded and symbiotic entrepreneurship education profile for genomics.

best in genomics culture enabler
BEST in genomics ! Culture enabler
  • Even if graduate students are not yet Genome Canada funded researchers, they must be included in this pilot project as they are the future candidates for such funding
  • Fostering entrepreneurship is a long term process involving the development of an entrepreneurial culture
  • Encoding entrepreneurship attitudes and skills within these younger cohorts of scientists will eventually impact the older groups
  • Seniors will then face more entrepreneurial new-comers, inducing among everyone more effervescence and emulation.

BEST in genomics ! Competences & Skills

  • Help scientists to realize their entrepreneurial potential, as many of them have never been aware of it, or confirm their true value as active entrepreneurs
  • Provide the tools to develop their savoir-agir (action)
  • Through five generic entrepreneurial competences :
    • creativity and innovation
    • flexibility and adaptability
    • communication
    • networking
    • problem-solving

best in genomics in four 4 levels
BEST in genomics ! In four (4) levels

Four-Level personalized approach bringing together individuals and their entrepreneurial objectives:

  • Level 1 : Enlightening entrepreneurial awareness
  • Level 2 : Scientific innovation and opportunity recognition
  • Level 3 : Enhancing the value of innovations - Connecting science to industry
  • Level 4 : Bouncing from project to commercialization

best in genomics expected outcomes
BEST in genomics ! Expected outcomes
  • Develop a wider, stronger, and long-lasting basis of entrepreneurial culture for all fields of genomics.
  • Be more proactive in increasing well-understood success factors associated with commercializing research – fundamental concepts of effective entrepreneurship - instead of waiting for those rare cases of successful genomics entrepreneurs.
  • Expand and optimize relationships between academia and private firms in biotech and genomics.
  • Improve and maintain short-, mid- and long-term economic outcomes in Canada.

best in genomics to conclude
BEST in genomics ! To conclude …
  • Fostering and maintaining an entrepreneurial culture, especially among scientists and academics, is not an easy task, as it’s now missing so much.
  • BEST in genomics! has all the drive and expertise needed to attain such objectives.
  • Please support this 3-year pilot-project and you will be fully rewarded on the mid- and long-term.

Let’s spread the entrepreneurial virus

among biotech and genomics !

No cure is needed.

Infection starts RIGHT NOW !
