About Event

Could you be one of the exceptional biotechnology and AI engineers, researchers, or specialists to be selected to compete in our 24-hour Hackathon for AI in Bio?

Join a curated group of ambitious and talented individuals with diverse skills and backgrounds, all obsessed about the intersection of biotechnology and artificial intelligence. If you're a skilled biologist, ML engineer or a postgraduate student with an interest in developing AI-enabled biotech solutions, then this hackathon is tailor-made for you. 

With a decade of backing innovation in biotech, Entrepreneur First is excited to welcome the next generation of founders in computational biology to join the ranks of Kheiron, Biographica, DeeplifeImVitro, and many more in our portfolio.

Who should apply?

This is an exclusive event for individuals who exemplify excellence in either the AI or life sciences domains. Whether you're an early-career professional or a rising star, your presence here signifies your dedication to shaping the future of biotechnology through AI.

The hackathon has been designed to provide a collaborative and competitive environment for individuals with a background in the life sciences (e.g. geneticists, synthetic biologists, computational biologists) and/or computer science (AI specialists, ML engineers, developers); however, we welcome applicants who have honed their skills elsewhere and are determined to innovate in this space.

Since pioneering Talent Investing in 2014, we’ve learned to recognize individuals with extraordinary futures before anyone else, embedding them in a community of ambitious peers and giving them the tools they need to succeed, fast. We back them before they have a company, a team, even before they have an idea, based purely on talent.

The startups cofounded on our programs are now worth over $10B, and include Tractable, Magic Pony Technology, Cleo, La Vie, Aztec, Sonantic, and many more.

EF is backed by some of the world's leading founders and investors, including Patrick and John Collison (Stripe); Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), Tom Blomfield (GoCardless and Monzo), Sara Clemens (Whatnot and Twitch); Demis Hassabis (Google Deepmind); and Matt Mullenweg (Wordpress). We exist to make great companies happen that otherwise wouldn’t.
