BioAsia 2023, a life-sciences and healthcare conference, will be hosting a "Start-Up Show" in Hyderabad, India. The conference is organised by the Government of Telangana and will feature an "Innovation Zone" that includes a start-up stage pavilion and an incubator pavilion. The event, which is set to run from February 24 to 26, is committed to driving innovation and has offered participation fee waivers and free display booths to more than 75 short-listed start-ups.

The event aims to provide an opportunity for promising start-ups in the pharma, biotech, life sciences, health-tech, and med-tech sectors to exhibit their innovative ideas on a global stage. The 20th edition of BioAsia is expected to attract over 3,000 participants from more than 50 countries.

The "Innovation Zone" has received an overwhelming response from the start-up community, with over 400 applicants from around the world. The applications were scrutinised based on the product's ability to fulfil demand, affordability, and peculiarity. The start-ups will be provided space to showcase their innovation at the exhibition.

PE and VC firms, investment banks, and angel investors have been invited to the event, giving budding start-ups the opportunity to network and explore potential collaborations. The participating start-ups will have access to all conferences and sessions, as well as the opportunity to network with industry leaders. A jury panel will select five start-ups to exhibit at the main BioAsia Valedictory session and will be given exclusive pitch time for each team. The selected start-ups will receive a cash prize along with credits for Amazon cloud.

The start-up stage is being organised in partnership with Tech Mahindra and BIRAC, the Government of India. Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary (I&C and IT), Government of Telangana, said that the sheer number of start-up deals and funding is a testament to Hyderabad's ascension to one of the top five start-up hubs in the country. He added that the Innovation Zone presented an enormous opportunity for distinctive start-ups.

Overall, BioAsia 2023's Start-Up Show provides a unique platform for prospective start-ups to showcase their innovative ideas in the healthcare and life sciences ecosystem. It offers a global stage for start-ups to network and collaborate with industry leaders, and to gain exposure and recognition for their innovative ideas.
