Shaker : innovative biotech project - Biocluster Genopole

ShakerServices provided by the Shaker are designed particularly for doctoral and postdoctoral students who come up with original ideas and innovative projects during their studies, and relating to applications in healthcare, environment, agritech, foodtech or synthetic biology.

The Biotech Lab - Shaker- Biocluster Genopole

Specifically, the Shaker’s services are designed to support proof-of-concept experimentation by future company creators, by providing free access to a research laboratory as well as facilitating ad hoc connections with top-notch scientific and technical personnel drawn from the 2,500-strong ecosystem of innovation managers, research scientists and entrepreneurs as well as established companies on the site.

Shaker services also come with initial training in entrepreneurship as its clientele is generally unfamiliar with the intricacies of the business world. This training is structured as a series of introduction courses on financing means for biotechnology, biotech-specific legal and regulatory obligations, and business communications. The Shaker can also provide access to premarketing studies and other relevant information required to give innovators and entrepreneurs a better idea of the road to come.

By the time they leave the Shaker, under the guidance of Genopole-Entreprises, we expect budding entrepreneurs to have been able to test their technology, to have refined their business proposal with first financial hypotheses, as well as to have built a clear presentation of the company’s project.
The Shaker’s program is for a period of six months that can be extended for another 6 months.

BoosterThe Booster is the logical second step in Genopole’s offer to entrepreneurs. This one-year program – also renewable for another period of one year - targets entrepreneurs whose companies (less than 2 years old) are considered to have high potential for development and growth, either nationally or internationally, or both. Following a thorough diagnosis to establish a support plan that is specifically tailored for each company, the Booster services include assistance in building a strong business plan, in accelerating business development (including also co-financing consultancy mandates), as well as direct support in fund raising.

The Booster program also provides access to office and lab spaces, state-of-the-art technology platforms and experienced mentors. We hope to enroll seven champion companies per year in the program.
