To strengthen the links between academic bioentrepreneurs and industry, the Therapy Development Accelerator (TDA) is organizing a series of events (“SPARK Nights”) where bioentrepreneurs are challenged, advised and supported by industry leaders in their field.
Original program at Stanford
This mentoring program has been running at SPARK Stanford since 2006 and has been extremely successful. Over 100 volunteer advisors provide advice to the academic entrepreneurs. The TDA recently joined the SPARK Global Network.
Volunteer SPARK Advisors
Over 25 experienced and talented SPARK Advisors with extensive industry and start-up experience regularly attend our SPARK Nights meetings. They provide advice and share their wisdom with the projects and spin-offs.
