Quantum and Deep Technology Entrepreneurship

The Bristol ecosystem has developed into one of the UK's most prominent and established locations to build an innovative quantum or deep tech company. So what support is available locally and how can you build your own quantum or deep tech company?

This event will firstly take a look at the pathway to emerging technology entrepreneurship, looking at barriers to commercialisation, how to discover investment opportunities in the Bristol and South West area and hearing about the highs (and lows!) from Bristol entrepreneurs.

A panel of experts from Bristol's start-up ecosystem will then discuss what training and infrastructure is available within Bristol and will discuss the ways Bristol is paving a way for deep science companies outside of the golden triangle.
