IN THEIR WORDS

What our venture scientists say

My favourite part of the programme was the mentoring. At first, we were describing the tech wrong and we were aiming it at the wrong people, but we knew we were only ever a few weeks away from having a meeting with someone to talk about it and trying a different way of doing it. It pushes you and helps you build momentum, which would be quite difficult to do in isolation.

Jessica Birt, Concinnity Genetics

By showing me the path ahead and breaking it down into a series of clear steps, the programme has made it feasible for me to start my own company.

Adam Harris, Myriad Wind

The programme is complete magic. Before joining, I had no idea where to start. By Demo Day, we had a working prototype.
