On April 1, The Ganesha Lab opened its application process for its scale-up program BIGinBIO 2023, with the mission to internationalize biotech startups and prepare entrepreneurs to navigate the competitive global markets – translating science into good business.
Who can apply? TGL is looking for early-stage Latin American biotech startups with technologies or solutions that have a great potential for impact, a global vision and address the following mega-trends: Healthcare Access, Food Scarcity, Aging Population and Emerging Threats.

The Ganesha Lab will select a group of startups to participate in BIGinBIO 2023, who will have access to mentoring, workshops, and individual coaching for three intensive months. For the third consecutive year, the program will culminate with two virtual weeks of Soft-landing US Program, led by international partners through which the startups will have the opportunity to get to know the US market up close.
At the final Pitch, and based on all the work done during the process, The Ganesha Lab will select the startups best prepared to access international markets to participate in the International Market Validation (IMV program), where they will continue the international scaling process in the US, with the support of The Ganesha Lab partners and its international networks.
