Here's a few places in Oxfordshire where startups can receive full support.

Join a workshop with Dr David Lunn, Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Entrepreneur First and former Marie Curie Fellow, University of Oxford

We’ll be discussing why founding a company is the most ambitious thing you could do with your career/research and why in 2021, the scale, scope and cost of launching your own startup have never been more attractive. We’ll also feature examples of companies and talk briefly about the key next steps you might want to explore to get started.

David is an Entrepreneur in Residence at Entrepreneur First, the world’s leading talent investor, and Co-founder and Director of Revena, a global technical network that supports both early-stage companies and investors in life science and deep tech. David is a scientist by training and previous Marie Curie Fellow at Oxford. He transitioned from academia to lead the technical programmes at OxSyBio, the Oxford Synthetic Biology spin-out founded by Prof. Hagan Bayley, and has since held a number of senior scientific positions in early-stage biotechnology companies.
