    About Us

    We know that every founder’s journey is nothing short of a radical personal odyssey, especially in the early stages of crafting a successful technology-based venture. We know that with the right support there are few challenges you cannot conquer. We are dedicated to giving you this support right from the outset.

    This is our commitment to you at Founders at the University of Cambridge: providing a curated set of programmes alongside a network of investors, experts, practitioners and mentors, all for the benefit of you, our founders. 
 Our audacious aim? To create a blueprint for how best to support founders who want to scale their scientific breakthroughs and have global societal impact.



    OUR TEAM

    We’re a small team with big ambitions and ideas. We are a community of like-minded individuals who share a passion for innovation and a commitment to turning dreams into reality.

    Our team is comprised of experienced entrepreneurs, industry experts and practitioners who are dedicated to helping founders and founding teams navigate the exciting but challenging journey of growing a science-base spinout at the very early stages. It’s clearly early days but if this is something that resonates with you, do join us on our journey as we will be making hires.
