Kickstart accelerates commercial partnerships between startups, leading corporates and institutions
Kickstart is an ecosystem innovation platform that bridges the gap between startups, corporations, cities, foundations and universities to accelerate partnerships and deep tech innovation. This requires unprecedented collaboration between established organisations and the most audacious entrepreneurs to solve humanity’s biggest challenges through innovation in science and technology.
