Unveiling the Venture Science Doctorate

Time/Date: 4-6pm, Thursday 20th of October 2022

Join us as we unveil a new programme, the Venture Science Doctorate, combining research and entrepreneurship, to put venture creation at the heart of the PhD.

Deep Science Ventures is launching a new venture-led, diversity-first PhD programme, the Venture Science Doctorate (VSD). With backing from leading partners and a supervisory network of the world's most entrepreneurial science Professors, graduate researchers will spend 1 year analysing their chosen sector, before up to 2 years of lab work, to intentionally converge on high-impact science companies.

We'll be hosting a 2-hour virtual conference to explain why a new cadre of scientists is needed, and how you - as a graduate, researcher, supervisor, funder, diversity champion, curriculum designer, or partner lab - can join us. Chaired by Dr Claire Thorne, Venture Partner at Deep Science Ventures, confirmed keynote speakers and panellists include:

  • George Freeman MP, former UK Minister for Science Research and Innovation, BEIS & Biomedical start-up founder.
  • Seth Bannon, Founding Partner, Fifty Years.
  • Sarah Morill, Program Continuum Director, Activate.
  • Thomas Kalil, CIO Schmidt Futures & former Deputy Director for Technology and Innovation, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
  • Lina Arbelaez, Head of Decarbonisation Ventures, Anglo American.
  • Prof. Ramana Nanda, Director, Institute for Deep Tech Entrepreneurship, Imperial College London.
  • Priya Guha MBE, Venture Partner, Merian Ventures & Board Member, UKRI.
