Patrick

Venture Operations Manager

Patrick is passionate about novel technologies that can provide sustainable solutions to the problems facing humanity.

Patrick holds a PhD in Molecular biology from the University of Cambridge, where he worked on algal synthetic biology developing tools to regulate gene expression in strains of industrial importance.  During his studies at the University of Cambridge Patrick also founded an Agri-Tech startup which developed novel crop protection products. 

This first-hand experience in running an early stage DeepTech startup gave Patrick particular insight into the sector.
