Lean Launch Programme – Options Roundabout Pitches

July 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm BST

At Lean Launch Programme Options Roundabout, our next cohort of teams will pitch their commercially promising ideas to an invited audience of funders, investors and entrepreneurs.

Our ventures from leading Universities across the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, have emerged from a rigorous customer discovery journey, meeting customers to test their value propositions and determine whether there is a market for products or services that utilise outcomes from their research.

With places limited, this event is a unique opportunity for early-stage investors to engage with many of the best commercial opportunities from the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It's also a great chance to meet and talk to team members from the technology transfer offices. Register now to attend and receive updates on our teams who will be pitching.


Registration & cofee from 10:00am

10:30am Pitch session (each team - 5 min pitch & 5 min Q&A)
12:00pm Awards presentations
12:15pm Lunch & networking

Lean Launch Programme

In collaboration with Helix Innovation Partnerships , the North by Northwest Consortiums Lean Launch Programme is a novel 5 week pre-accelerator programme where university researchers have the opportunity to:

  • Validate their research in the market;

  • Funding (up to £5k per team) in support of customer discovery activities;

  • Investigate the most appropriate technology transfer route to market; and

  • Opportunity to secure additional funding upon successful completion of the programme

Graduates of past cohorts have included spinouts Causeway Sensors, Green Lizard Technologies and Phion Therapeutics, which have gone on to raise investment, secure grant funding, win awards and gain traction in their respective markets.
