Esco Ventures is proud to announce that our first batch of fellows have officially graduated and we're now embarking on Morphosis II. Congratulations to Drs. Tenzin Gocha, Kathy Su and Mayura Wagle!

The Morphosis Program is a fellowship program launched by Esco Ventures X, designed for the brightest scientific and budding entrepreneurial minds to embark on biotech venture creation in a VC environment.

This full time program consists of two phases:

In Phase 1 (6 months), Fellows will participate in generating novel venture hypotheses and working closely alongside academic experts and experienced investment professionals in a highly creative and collaborative environment.

At the end of Phase 1, the venture hypotheses will be evaluated and selected projects will be incubated by Esco Ventures X over a period of a year, with the selected Fellow(s) embarking on Phase 2 of the program to lead the R&D towards achieving POC*.

* Funding of up to SGD 500,000 will be awarded for each project. Projects that meet the POC milestones will be incorporated as a new biotech company.

As Morphosis I comes to a close, we are also looking for bright minds to join us on Morphosis II. If you’re interested to know more, we have a sharing session with Dr. Tenzin Gocha and Dr. Mayura Wagle coming up on 22nd July 2019 (Monday), refreshments provided, so RSVP now to find out more! More details can be found in the flyer below.
