Venture Mentoring scheme launched to boost deep tech start-ups as part of RSC’s Change Makers initiative

  • Date 13 Mar 2023

Game-changing start-ups and scale-ups can now take advantage of free expert advice thanks to the Royal Society of Chemistry's new Venture Mentoring programme.

Our scheme will unite ambitious entrepreneurs with seasoned professionals who will share insights gleaned from their own business experiences. This offering is a core component of our Change Makers initiative, which we launched in February 2023.

Quarterly matching events will help identify perfect partnerships and then the two sides will typically meet monthly for up to one year. Four London-based events are already scheduled for 2023.

After the pairing process is complete, typically two mentors will work with each venture. Mentors will share the benefits of their experience to give the venture’s founders unconflicted advice and fresh perspectives.

Change Makers will support a myriad of deep tech chemistry start-ups tackling major societal and environmental issues. It marks the evolution of the EnterprisePlus programme that supported more than 600 SMEs over a decade. Other services available to Change Makers invitees include access to masterclasses and investment pitching events, supported by an ecosystem of individuals committed to driving profound change.
