To conclude the webinar series, in the final session leading entrepreneurs discussed in first-hand how they have taken their technologies from the lab into successful start-up companies. This session was chaired by the 2020 Charles Hatchett Award winner Professor Manish Chhowalla from the University of Cambridge.
Jean de La Verpilliere, Chief Executive Officer, Echion Technologies
Echion Technologies commercialises proprietary Mixed Niobium Oxide anode materials for next-generation superfast-charging batteries. In this talk I will reflect upon the main milestones that have enabled Echion to cross the chasm from its foundation in Cambridge University labs in 2017 to product validation and market entry. In particular I will focus on the synergies between startups and large established companies, and how successful interactions can create tremendous value for both parties.
