Building an Ecosystem for Science Startups

What if building a science company were as easy as building a digital startup? This panel is about creating a supportive environment for scientists who want to build ventures outside of traditional academia and industry. It will bring together a deep science focused VC fund, a design agency that scouts for good scientific problems, a bio hackspace, and an organisation whose goal is to promote scientific innovation.


  1. Is it true that the best science companies start without any science?
  2. How to define and prioritise good problems in need of science innovation?
  3. How does the UK’s Golden Triangle differ from science startup scenes in other tech cities like SF, NYC or Boston?
