Online Places only

Join us to celebrate the latest in innovation and entrepreneurship at the National Gallery (Hawthornden Lecture Theatre) in the heart of Edinburgh. Watch pitches from the inspirational start-ups that have taken part in the third Venture Builder Incubator. Vote for your favourite - the winners receive prizes - and meet the teams afterwards.

This year's programme has supported 23 Startups to explore and validate the commercial potential of data-driven research. The cohort includes 7 start-up sponsored by Cancer Research Horizons who are using data to deliver better diagnosis and treatment options for cancer patients. We are also delighted to be supported by Barclays Eagle Labs.

About the Venture Builder Incubator

The Venture Builder Incubator is delivered by the Bayes Centre, the University of Edinburgh’s Innovation Hub for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, and supported by Edinburgh Innovations, the commercialisation service of the University. It is delivered on behalf of the University’s Data-Driven Innovation Hubs, in contribution to the Data-Driven Entrepreneurship programme.

Through a tailored programme of interactive online workshops and events researchers become founders who are encouraged to connect their data-driven ideas to the world and to explore investment opportunities. This is the third programme and it builds on the achievements of the previous cohorts which have seen considerable success, attracting more than £1.8m in funding to date.

The event is free to attend. Please share the invite with colleagues and anyone in your network who might be interested in joining the event.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.
