Biotech hopefuls pile into the Box

QB3’s Startup in a Box is bursting.
Unwrapped roughly six months ago with the goal of helping 15 wannabe entrepreneurs per year convert their science ideas into actual companies, the program already has 36 clients.
“We’ve hit an untapped vein,” said Douglas Crawford, associate director of QB3, or the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences, the University of California-based initiative linking life sciences researchers and companies.
Now, Crawford said, the goal is to help 50 entrepreneurs-in-waiting this year cut through the financial and legal barriers for starting new companies.
