BENGALURU: Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP) has on Thursday launched the third edition of National Bio Entrepreneurship Competition to attract biotech entrepreneurs that are focused on deep tech. The competition will give away a total prize of Rs 3 crore in cash prizes and investment opportunities apart from access to mentorship.

This year's competition was unveiled by Renu Swarup, Secretary, Department of Biotechnology, and Manish Diwan, Head, SPED, BIRAC.

In three years, the competition, organized by C-CAMP as part of BIRAC Regional Entrepreneurship Centre, has emerged as an important platform for startups with game-changing business ideas from across the country to leave their mark at a national and international level, said C-CAMP in a press release.

“The scale at which the entrepreneurial ecosystem in India is growing is phenomenal as proved by NBEC. But now the challenge is to keep up the pace. Startups have an appetite for risk but they often lack in direction. Mentorship by key industry leaders such as provided by NBEC is crucial in commercialisation” Swarup said at the event today.

She has emphasized the need for robust and institutionalised mentorship network accessible for all entrepreneurs.

NBEC prizes are sponsored by WIN Foundation, Ankur Seeds, Applied Materials India, Biocon, GE Healthcare, HealthVenture, USA, Mahyco, Novozymes, and Venkatadri Bobba.
