LABORATION: Panel Day

Published October 11th 2018

The first ever Laboration contestants made their pitches to Aker BioMarine panel on October 11. The specially selected eight candidates are competing for a free 12 month membership at ShareLab, with access to lab & lab management, office space, and mentorships – generously sponsored by Aker BioMarine.

The participants’ ideas will be evaluated on innovation level, commercial potential, societal benefits, and several other key factors.

Armend G. Håti, Ph.D. and director of Product Development at Aker BioMarine, said:

"At Aker BioMarine we are strong supporters of thinking outside the ordinary and we always seek to support innovators that also share our drive to improve human and planetary health. Our sponsorship with ShareLab is one example of this. We are pleased to have received lots of interesting biotech cases and were impressed by the cases in our pitch-competition today."

What happens now?

The panel will make their picks, and in November, the three top picks face off in the Laboration final. Who will make out with the head prize? Follow us for updates!

"Our innovators are the heart of ShareLab. The Laboration sponsorship from Aker BioMarine is both a great opportunity for us to include new members to the ShareLab family and a path for entrepreneurs to lift their projects to a completely new level. We very much look forward to welcoming the Laboration winner"
