How e@UBC helped transform Aspect Biosystems from a wild idea into a BC anchor company

An entrepreneurship@UBC success story


Prior to entrepreneurship@UBC, Aspect Biosystems was composed of three engineers with a big idea: 3D printing human tissue, on demand. As electrical and computer engineers, co-founders Tamer Mohamed, Simon Beyer, and Konrad Walus shared a solid technical knowledge base and a “first principles” mindset when approaching problems. Yet, despite their deep tech background and expertise in academia, they hadn’t built a company before. The team knew they needed to develop their business acumen in order to translate their research into an enduring biotechnology company that could thrive.


That's where entrepreneurship@UBC came in.
