The Emerging Technologies Competition is the Royal Society of Chemistry’s annual initiative for early stage companies and academic entrepreneurs who want to commercialise their technologies to make a global impact.
Over the last four months the Royal Society of Chemistry has been holding its 8th Emerging Technologies Competition.
This year, we received over 90 applications that were whittled down to 23 of the most novel, innovative and promising chemistry technologies across Europe.
The pitch final took a slightly different look this year with our 23 finalists pitching their exciting technologies, in a behind closed door virtual event, to our esteemed panel of judges.
We are now delighted to announce our 4 winners across the competition’s categories: Health, Energy & Environment, Food & Drink and Enabling Technologies.
We are delighted to welcome Reddie & Grose as our competition sponsors.
At Reddie & Grose, our mission is to help start-ups and SMEs obtain intellectual property that matters.
Reddie & Grose is a firm of patent and trade mark attorneys with a modern, forward thinking approach to obtaining and defending patent and trademark protection for clients of all sizes. This year we are excited to provide an exclusive workshop to the competition finalists before they present their technology to the judges.
Our clear, commercially orientated advice has attracted many successful start-ups and SMEs in the chemistry and life sciences sectors. Through our location in Cambridge we have built a strong relationship with local incubator companies who value our experience in supporting start-ups and university spin-offs, which include a European inventor of the year whose product has revolutionised HIV testing in developing countries. In addition to our Cambridge office, our teams in London and Munich work closely with VCs and multi-nationals to help them identify the value of the IP in their investments and acquisitions.
From establishing and managing patent portfolios, to supporting companies through funding rounds, takeovers, IPOs and product commercialisation, Reddie & Grose’s breadth of experience makes us the perfect partner for any company who wants intellectual property that matters.
