We're a venture builder studio for scientists & engineers at any stage of their career. Our focus is on creating the right environment for you to maximise your potential and optimise the success of starting a science-driven company.

That includes finding a team with very specific knowledge and skills, focusing on and testing commercially viable opportunities, and securing funding to develop proof of concept. Check out our 6-month venture building programme.
