David Gill: ‘Turning an idea into a business’
David Gill heads up St John’s Innovation Centre in Cambridge, the most established business incubator in the UK (founded in 1987). Prior to this, he set up and ran the Innovation & Technology Unit at HSBC Bank in London (1997-2004), before serving as an executive director of ETCapital Ltd, a venture firm focused on early-stage, technology-based investments. Educated at Cambridge, he qualified as a barrister before working in corporate finance for US and UK banks.
David will speak about what to look for (and watch out for) in an idea, and what is needed to take that idea and turn it into a profitable business.
Dr. Shamus Husheer: ‘Graduating to Entrepreneurship’
Dr. Husheer graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2007, co-founding Cambridge Temperature Concepts to develop a novel solution for infertility (www.duofertility.com). Within 18 months, the company had raised 1m of investment and designed, developed and launched a new category of medical device onto the UK market. As a New Zealand citizen, he has not only had to negotiate the usual business issues, but also the UK visa system, and is almost finished the 5-year Entrepreneur’s Visa.
