"Both myself, a chartered mechanical engineer, and my co-founder, a research scientist, come from technical backgrounds, so the Entrepreneur’s Programme gave us a good grounding on how to formulate a business plan, plus other essentials such as the importance of cashflow and marketing. At the end of the two days, you pitch to a panel of investors and experts and also hear pitches from other companies, which is a really useful experience.”

“Going forward, Liquid Vision are exploring the use of optical sensors in a range of applications, including food and drink, water, and process control.”

“As a business we’ve come a long way. Support from the ERDF Entrepreneur’s Programme was a real catalyst to these successes, putting us firmly on the path to growth and funding.”
