Synopsis

Products in the chemicals industries have a long journey to take from initial conception through to the important roles they play in our everyday lives. For a new enterprise, that journey can be considered in three stages:

  1. Commercialising a concept
  2. Building a business during product development
  3. Scaling to come on market.

This event will explore the wide-ranging topics that must be considered to progress chemical technologies through this middle phase – how to build a business whilst still developing your product – including hearing from those who have done it before and networking with others on this journey.


Attendees

This event will appeal to anyone interested into turning science into a business, including those in this sector who have experience in this translation or who support these efforts (IP, finance, consulting etc.)
