“I was lucky enough to take part in the SETsquared Researcher to Innovator programme and the follow up ICURe Innovation-to-Commercialisation programme. I had never thought about being an entrepreneur until then but with the aid of others I could see how I could combine my passion to help the world with developing a sustainable business.”
