Illumina Accelerator

[On Demand]
Illumina Accelerator is a company creation engine building and investing in early-stage startups with extensive mentorship, financial support, and access to genomics systems and lab space in the SF Bay Area and Cambridge (UK). Every 6 months, Illumina Accelerator invests in 3-5 startups advancing breakthrough applications in genomics, including therapeutics, diagnostics, agriculture, synthetic biology, software/hardware, and direct-to-consumer. Collectively, our 45 graduates have raised nearly $850M in the last few years. Illumina Accelerator is currently expanding with an incubator in Shanghai in partnership with Sequoia VC, and a genomics hub in Melbourne in partnership with local government and academic entities. The goal of the talk is to showcase the ILMN Accelerator story, how our startups are leveraging genomics to change biotech and healthcare, and how to optimally deploy alternative entrepreneurship models in different ecosystems (e.g., incubator, accelerator, research hub).
