Accelerate Companies

Introduction

Since launching in 2018, we have supported 15 fledgling life-science companies. Each cohort brings with it a diverse set of skills, expertise and experience, but they all share a deep passion for their science or technology and a desire to make a difference to the lives of tomorrow’s patients. We keep in touch with all our cohort companies and are proud to continue to support and follow their progress.

Meet the Current Cohort

Our 2020/21 cohort, ArkVax, ConcR, Paediatric HealthTech and Stroma Biosciences bonded over Zoom during a programme which, due to the pandemic, had to be conducted primarily online. However, this didn’t dampen their enthusiasm or impede their progress. Discover what they thought of their experience of Accelerate@Babraham here.

Alumni

Meet the Alumni

Therapeutics is our thing…but over the last three years our cohort companies have also come to us with strong foundational ideas across the fields of diagnostics, medical devices, and machine learning and AI. In each case we’ve been able to support them with very specific expert and investor introductions as well as help them refine their thinking; enabling them to take their science and technology further - equipping them for success.
