Anyone can be an entrepreneur

Our Entrepreneurial Programmes Initiative aims to develop and nurture an entrepreneurial culture amongst cancer researchers in the UK.

We know that translating your idea might seem complex and entrepreneurship is different for everyone, so we’re here to guide you through it.

If you want to make your innovation into a commercial reality that has real-world impact, start your entrepreneurial journey with us today.

We can't beat cancer without you

Our ambition is for 3 out of 4 patients diagnosed with cancer to survive the disease by 2034. To achieve this, we're supporting researchers to accelerate the translation of their ideas and discoveries through entrepreneurship, into products that will benefit people with cancer.

Our entrepreneurial programmes will:

help you translate your research

show you how to build a business

connect you to a network of like-minded people

help you find you the support you need, when you need it
