I'm currently in a neuroscience PhD program, about 2 years away from finishing. Before I started my program, during undergrad, I founded a preclinical bio pharmaceutical startup that raised about $500k, but ultimately failed once it got to a critical animal trial after two years. Sucks that it failed, but it was a tremendous experience. During undergrad I also interned at my university's technology transfer office, was a mentor for a student life science accelerator, interned at a local cancer therapeutic company where I did market evaluation, and was a team lead for a student biotech consulting group.
Since starting my PhD I've been interning at my university's accelerator and acting as a sometimes mentor when a company is well within my wheelhouse. I also did aat the local office of a big pharma in a business development role, right after my first year.
I've looked intoInsight, Bridge to , and the standard summer internships that someone in an MBA program might do, and I'm stumped at where I fit. These types of programs seem tailored to either those with little to no business experience, or those doing an MBA with pre-MBA full time experience. I have no intention of doing an MBA, and I think I definitely have more experience than the typical ADC, but I'm not sure if I'm what is looking for in a summer associate.
Any recommendations for how to move forward? Thanks in advance!
