Badri Aekbote – 2020 CRUK Activate Challenge Runner-up

The CRUK Activate Challenge was a great learning experience for me, it gave me a lot of confidence to start my entrepreneurship and innovation journey. Coming from a purely academic background many researchers like me have seldom training and knowledge in how a business starts and runs. 

The training provides a structured mindset with empowering skills about taking your idea towards next steps with lots of useful information, knowledge, links and connections. Personally, it inspired me to go forward and pursue my idea into business. I would highly recommend this to any cancer researchers who want to innovate, think out of academia and translate their idea into business”
