2017 was a difficult year, but it was a real joy to have heard the following news just before the close of play:
“I am writing to you to confirm that your application for ICURe Innovation to Commercialisation (funded by BEIS through Innovate UK) has been successful and you have been awarded one of the limited places on the programme in Cohort 12. The requirements are very high for the programme and you will join a small number of teams who have been accepted on to the Cohort. Congratulations!”
It is a 3 months long programme covering substantial expenditure to carry out market validation of research-based business idea and receive intensive support in developing a structured business model. Looking forward to the hard graft for the duration of the project and much beyond it!
