Techcelerate helps early career researchers hone their entrepreneurial skills and explore the commercial potential of their discoveries, ideas and inventions.

The three-month programme gives researchers support to leave their labs and meet potential partners and customers. This enables them to refine their ideas to better meet the needs of the real world. Participants also benefit from entrepreneurship training as well as access to expert business advisors, coaches and entrepreneurial role models.

It its first year, the programme helped researchers make hundreds of new connections and raise more than a million pounds to continue their ventures. Read more about their successes.

The second round concluded in late 2018. Learn about their projects.
