Spring 2021 Accelerator Teams

The Spring 2021 Life Sciences Accelerator program has been completed and was an overwhelming success


Hear about the LifeX Accelerator from some of our graduates.

“We learned about the healthcare system as a whole, including regulatory and reimbursement options. We also discussed the beginnings of planning our businesses, including thinking about identifying our customers and understanding our value proposition.”

Shawn K. Kelly, Ph.D CEO, Precision Neuroscopics

“The LifeX Accelerator Program provided a wealth of information. The connections we made as a participating company have fueled growth of a stronger team and moved us closer to clinical milestones.”

Sam Rothstein, Ph.D CEO and Co-Founder, Duo Oncology

“What I liked most about the program was probably the opportunity to participate alongside other companies and CEOs. I learned just as much from watching my peers as I did from my mentors. The program helped me put a lot of things in perspective not only with specifics pertaining to Humotech but also for biotech startups in general. Another element I really appreciated was how personalized the support was from my mentors.”

John Mangual Humotech

“The presentation on customer discovery was so much better than anything we’ve heard before. The fact that this program is free is incredible!”

Stephen Jones, Ph.D Co-Founder and CEO, CerebroScope

“I learned a lot from LifeX. From talking to people who know the FDA process to learning how to make a pitch deck that can be presented to investors. I was introduced to investors and learned what they are actually looking for. I would definitely recommend being apart of this program.”

Andre Jemil Umali, PE President, Nemean Engineering Group

“The biggest goal is to understand the best business model of our developed liquid biopsy technology.”
