BDB Pitmans backs new generation of Torchbearers

Law firm BDB Pitmans is sponsoring an updated series on serial entrepreneurs under Business Weekly’s Cambridge Torchbearers brand.

The online and in-print feature showcases serial entrepreneurs in the science & technology cluster – how they started out in business, lessons learned and a warts and all assessment of their journey along the way.

The deal includes specific Torchbearer events where entrepreneurs will share their views in an environment which allows them to showcase the business area in which they are currently excelling.

The first of these is next week when Adam Durant, founder and CEO of sustainable aviation business SATAVIA will share details of a world first breakthrough with Etihad and Boeing – an historic event which happened only this week.

The launch event is on Wednesday, November 3rd at St Catherines College, Cambridge (5pm-8pm) with a COP26 theme and Durant will highlight how the company is applying AI, data analytics and atmospheric and climate science to make aviation smarter and greener.

If you would like to attend please email Kevin.peake [at]

Other events are being planned for 2022 with the first early next year.

Simon Burson, Partner at BDB Pitmans said: "We are delighted to be the sponsor of the new Torchbearers section. BDB Pitmans has a strong reputation for supporting entrepreneurs and Science & Technology businesses and our Cambridge office is the cornerstone of that thrust.”

Business Weekly CEO Tony Quested said: “We first launched Torchbearers several years ago since when more exciting young companies have emerged from Cambridge University, often steered by serial entrepreneurs.

“Also, we are seeing more companies being founded and steered as CEO by women entrepreneurs, which is an exciting development. As we roll out more Torchbearer initiatives a new Cluster will have been shown to have emerged – one fired by the brilliance of younger executives of both genders.”
