Entrepreneurship in iGEM is about fostering the creation and growth of a new industry where Synthetic Biology is the underlying technological platform. As with any new industry, it is not clear which business plans will be the most successful. But, there are also more fundamental questions: What Business models will succeed, how will intellectual property affect company formation and funding, what skills are required at each stage of company’s life cycle, how will government policies promote or hinder new companies, what will be the social contract with Synthetic Biology companies, [Insert your question here]?

For this first year we will be considering tracks examining critical business, regulatory and market issues that will determine the path of the Synthetic Biology industry:
Business Plans
Economic and Business Models
Industry Development
Business and Regulation
If you have an idea for a project that does not fit in any of these tracks, let us know and we will figure out how to make it work.
