The MESH BDIR team fosters the bioscience entrepreneurial culture at USC. Whether you are an aspiring entrepreneur or a young startup company looking to expand, MESH BDIR is here to help. MESH BDIR supports USC student, faculty, staff, and alumni entrepreneurs through:
Industry Expert Networking Opportunities
Connections to Capital and Space
We work with startup CEOs to help perfect the content and delivery of their company pitches and consult with company founders to develop fundraising strategies.
We support USC researchers by facilitating connections to capital and space opportunities. We collaborate with WaveMaker Three-Sixty Health, a LA-based healthcare-focused venture capital firm, to seek out USC-affiliated startups for investment. (Learn more here.) Where appropriate, we can provide introductions to bioscience/healthcare-focused venture capital firms with which USC has informal relationships. For companies seeking lab and/or office space, we can also provide introductions to several local options. (For a list of incubators located in the Los Angeles region, see the MESH BDIR Resources page.)
