Who We Are

The BioEntrepreneurship Core (BEC) is a multidisciplinary organization aimed at fostering and promoting scientific innovation at Wash U.

Our mission is to provide an educational forum for all students, post-docs, faculty, and staff regarding biotechnology based entrepreneurial opportunities and skills and to encourage relationship building between Wash U and the St. Louis entrepreneurial community.

What We Do

We host seminars, networking sessions, and coffee hours to connect our members and the community to bioentrepreneurial resources.

We also run the Bench to Business Challenge, a pitch competition, every spring
