Founders & Funders is an initiative by Saïd Business School, bridging the gap between science and business
Founders & Funders is a lunchtime event series of informal conversations about science and business. The initiative was first held in March 2020 as an extension of the ‘Ideas2 Impact’ programme. The sessions convene early career research scientists, MBAs, and others interested in innovation and entrepreneurship. The speakers are science business founders and funders, mostly Oxford-based, but also drawn in from the wider ecosystem, such as leading experts and alumni based in Silicon Valley, Boston, and beyond.
