What is the Conception X programme?

Conception X is a programme and platform that helps PhD students become Venture Scientists and commercialise their research in impactful ways.

Via a nine-month programme that includes training, coaching and mentoring, we help PhDs launch deeptech startups based on their research, connect with leading members of the deeptech community, and become eligible for innovation grants, awards and venture capital funding.

Over the past 4.5 years, 310+ venture scientists across 260+ teams have gone through the programme, with £26M+ capital raised. Teams make considerable progress, including revenue generation and collaborations with top firms. Our partnership with XTX Ventures will support 6-12 new companies per cohort over the next three years, with a typical cheque size of £100,000.

Join our discovery session to learn how Conception X can support you!

Who is it for?

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

Not ready to start a business just yet? Conception X also has a track for those who want to learn about entrepreneurship and consider it as a career choice, without having to commit to building a startup.

What makes our programme different?
