Innovation Seminar Series

The joint NanoDTC-Impulse-Maxwell Innovation Seminar Series has a series of brilliant speakers who are at different stages in their Innovation and Entrepreneurship journey.

We are delighted to welcome Dr Ruizhi Wang, co-founder and CEO of Hexagonfab in our Feb talk. The title of Ruizhi’s talk is “Academic innovation turned start-up companyā€¯.

About the Talk New discoveries and inventions are often made at Universities, but how can such innovations transition for industry applications? This talk will be about the journey from a discovery made at the Engineering Department of the University of Cambridge to founding and growing a start-up company. The focus will be on the role that innovation had in the process, but will put it into perspective in the larger picture of entrepreneurship.

About the Speaker Ruizhi Wang is the Founder of HexagonFab, a company developing nano-material powered research instruments to accelerate drug development. The technology utilised by HexagonFab was developed during his PhD at the University of Cambridge.

About the Seminar Series This series of seminars happens monthly and speakers will present their ideas and experiences on how innovation impacts their endeavours.

We have a varied list of speakers, from academics turned in to entrepreneurs all the way to established companies. The format is a 45 minute talk, followed by Q&A. Attendance is free but spaces are limited so do register today.
