Based in School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, Spark researcher Massimiliano Russello from CNT-Web secured the BEST PITCH Award for his thermoplastic welding technology at the recent LEAN LAUNCH PROGRAMME Options Roundabout Pitches where 13 teams pitched their commercially promising ideas to an invited panel of funders, investors and entrepreneurs.
The Lean Launch Programme is a novel pre-accelerator programme where researchers have the opportunity to:
- Validate their research in the market;
- Funding (up to £5k per team) in support of customer discovery activities;
- Investigate the most appropriate technology transfer route to market; and
- Opportunity to secure up to £35k upon successful completion of the programme
Starting with a 1-day bootcamp, they embark on a tailored market discovery journey culminating with the opportunity to pitch their findings to an experienced panel of funders and stakeholders to help accelerate impact from their research.
Massimiliano also recently had his first article published in Composites Communications, his article is available here https://doi.org/10.1016/j.coco.2019.11.001
