TRANSLATE YOUR TECH-BASED INNOVATIONS TO BENEFIT PEOPLE WITH CANCER
Do you have an early-stage technology focused on diagnostics, MedTech or AI?
The Cancer Tech Accelerator, formed in partnership with Capital Enterprise and Roche UK, is designed to equip you with the entrepreneurial and technical skills required to translate your innovations into a start-up that can advance the early detection, diagnosis, monitoring or treatment of cancer.
Through our programme, you’ll attend a virtual bootcamp and three months of training to enable you to build, run and scale a successful health-tech business. The five best ideas will then receive up to £50,000 of non-dilutive grant funding, six months of tailored mentoring and extra business support, before we help you form an investor-ready start-up.
Applications close on 31 May. You don’t need to be CRUK-funded to apply. Find out more and apply Cancer Tech Accelerator | Accelerate Your Research
