About this Event

Conception X has been amazing for my startup journey!

- Itse Onuwaje - CEO, In-Neutro, PhD Candidate in Pharmacology and Tissue Engineering, UCL

What is the Conception X programme?

It's a venture builder that creates deep tech startups from PhDs. We help students commercialise their research.

It’s a 9-month programme, which includes business and technology coaching, mentorship, deep tech entrepreneurial training, community events, legal support and so much more!

Who is it for?

PhD students working on an innovative technology based on their research, from any UK university.

Why is Conception X different?

We take no equity. Our programme is compatible with your research degree (runs alongside your PhD), and is non-residential. We are student-founder first and support you on your entrepreneurial journey.

What is it worth and how much does it cost?

Programme value is £75K per student. It’s free for accepted students.

Here's what our student teams think:

"Conception X (...) has been an invaluable resource for expanding my network of advisors and investors and offered much else besides - including mentorship, courses and events."

- Tom Robbins - CEO, Pinfold Technologies, PhD Candidate in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, UCL

The Conception X team felt like a family to us – We felt we were continuously learning during the programme as any questions we had were promptly addressed by the team, and if the team did not have the answer, they would direct us to relevant experts.

- Phoebe Heseltine - CEO, Enteromics, PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering, UCL
