From ideation to market.

ADVANCE is a six-week programme where researchers use their own projects to develop propositions for the market. Participants spend half a day each week working with sector experts through a combination of practical training, cohort activities, 1:1 mentoring and coaching.

Through ADVANCE, researchers develop mindset and skills for:
  • Effective stakeholder engagement
  • Market opportunity valuation, due diligence, and freedom to operate
  • Assess their proposition, iterate, pivot, and pitch it confidently to funders and partners

ADVANCE welcomes researchers from any disciplines with a basic business idea. No previous business work is needed to participate.
