Very helpful video. I was wondering, this video was posted 5 days ago however the application deadline is 8pm March 25th. Are you still accepting applications? Or would this application process roll over into the next round? Thanks!
Thank you! Our team have already two ingredients you mentioned. We are looking forward to apply for next batch from South Korea.

That's very encouraging so thanks for making the requirements clear and understandable Jared.
Hi just a suggestion, you should do this for biotech companies but biotechs need more, more like 500k as 150k is nothing (maybe you can do one preclinical poc in vivo but that’s it lol).
