Start Codon and Cancer Research UK stage startups seminar

One year ago Start Codon announced a partnership with Cancer Research UK and their intent to work together to focus on the Cambridge UK cluster by supporting the development of viable startup businesses addressing unmet medical needs. 

One of the activities undertaken has been a seminar series, designed to educate a multi-disciplinary oncology research community about entrepreneurship, company formation, operations and fundraising. 

Four sessions of a five-part series have been run and have seen over 500 entrepreneurs register and attend. The one remaining upcoming session is titled ‘How to Pitch, Fundraising and Design and Branding’ and will provide tips on how to run an effective pitch to impress investors. It will be live on Tuesday 13th April, 12:00 - 13:00 GMT.

Jason Mellad, CEO Start Codon said: “Joining forces with Cancer Research UK has enabled us to maximise the reach of our seminar series, which aims to educate the next-generation of entrepreneurs on how to develop exciting new start-ups that will address unmet medical needs. 

“The series has seen an incredible response, with over 500 budding entrepreneurs already attending, and we look forward to meeting more at the final event in this series.”

Benedict Conway, Entrepreneurial Programmes Manager at Cancer Research UK, added: “We are proud of our partnership with Start Codon, as part of Cancer Research UK's Entrepreneurial Programme, providing entrepreneurial training for cancer researchers across the UK.

“Through our partnership, we have enabled hundreds of cancer researchers to get bespoke entrepreneurial training from industry experts. We are dedicated to support cancer researchers to translate their research into innovations that can benefit patients.”
