Event description

Description

Many research graduates go on to pursue academic careers — but academia isn't for everyone. With less than half of PhD holders staying in academia and a wealth of industries valuing the skills acquired in a scientific education, other careers are not really “alternative” anymore. Being experimental, logical and data-focussed, many scientists find themselves on the path to entrepreneurship. But where to start?

SEC are partnering with Labstep for this event, an Oxford-borne tech startup team with first-hand expertise on transferring research skills from bench to business.

We are opening up the discussion, with recent and seasoned science entrepreneurs, university career officers and ex-academics working in London’s rapidly growing startup industry. Panellists will present their exciting stories, how they started and how they were able to combine science with the business world.

- Jan Domanki (CTO at Labstep)

- George Foot (Founder at Sixfold)

- Janette Junghaus (UCL Innovation and Enterprise)

- Nuno Leitao (Senior Biological Lead at Synthace)

Other attendees will include life science accelerator RebelBio and currently hiring businesses, so shake hands and make plans.
