WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS WILL I BE ABLE TO REVIEW?
The projects selected by Capital Cell’s team are 100% science-related. From Drug Discovery to Medical Devices, you’ll be able to sniff around all the promising projects listed on the website. To help you find the best projects for you, you will be able to filter them according to your expertise.
WHAT DOES THE REVISION PROCESS INVOLVE?
The process is really simple:
- You select a project on the website of your area of expertise
- You read the project (~ 20 slides)
- You give us feedback by grading a few key features
WILL THE ENTREPRENEUR SEE MY COMMENTS?
One of the key ways Capital Cell can contribute to the life science community is by providing expert opinion to improve their business model. Transparency is very important for us and our model is to give the entrepreneur all the information we obtain from the community.
HOW DOES THE REWARD SYSTEM WORKS?
Every quarter, Capital Cell reverts up to 20% of its quarterly turnover in favour of our BioExperts, as consideration for the reviews they have submitted during this period.
Every time you review a project, you will earn investment credits that will award you certain amount of credit depending of Capital Cell’s turnover during that quarter. For a whole year after the end of the quarter, you will be able to use that credit as investment in companies that are fundraising through our platform.
HOW TO USE MY CREDITS?
HOW DO YOU GET INVESTMENT CREDITS?
You get 1 investment credit every time you review a project.
Growing the network:
You get 1 investment credit every time an expert from your own network becomes a BioExpert and reviews a project for the first time.
DO MY CREDITS EXPIRE?
CAN I GET REFUNDS FROM OLD INVESTMENTS?
Only investments from the same month (or up to 30 natural days before) can be refunded.
