Founders Institute or Bizspark: which one should I go for?Watch
Bizspark to me looks extremely interesting as they help provide a lot of support regarding resources and teaching me / developing product (especially considering I can get £250 000 worth of azure features per year for 3 years).
also I believe microsoft doesnt allow you to be a part of another accelerator if you apply for bizspark
Founders Institute (FI) in comparison seems very useful for me now as it is a pre-seeding accelerator which specialises in helping me network, getting investors and protecting IP BUT requires me to pay 990 (£ or $, need to double check).
Also I read online that in singapore (and US) it is possible to be a part of FI but they hook you up with Bizspark, however I do not know if that is the case with the UK .
So yeah, what should I do?
I myself am from a healthcare background but had experience with graphic design and coding when in secondary and further education (essentially the health field I am in I cannot get much work in and spoiler, it is not psychology (psych imo is more of a social / pseudo health area).
if your not a psychology grad, do you mind me asking what you are?
I want to do something more clinical but am being held back by a lack of clinical experience (and for only being a registered pharmacist since November 2015). Community I cant stand with a passion but the irony is that it is what I get money from. I feel that in 10 years time, community pharmacy will be technician led and pharmacists will have (theoretically) a more clinical role supplementing a lot of services doctors provide (so pre-NHS england essentially where pharmacists did most primary care and doctors were mainyl involved in 2ndary care or more advanced primary care such as diagnosis of more than 3 fields and minor surgical interventions).
truth is however I want to switch to something like medicine or engineering if I had my way (how times change, when I did my degree, there were virtually no jobs in engineering or creative fields and tonnes in pharmacy, now its the opposite).
dont get me started on the crap that is com pharm. thanks anyways and best of luck getting into medicine (engineering I find surprising you want to get into tbh, what sort?)
