We are delighted to give back to the SUCCESS Accelerator programme by becoming Alumni Ambassadors. In 2021 we have been invited to a series of meetings with the new ARC Accelerator cohort (a rebrand of the SUCCESS Programme). In our first meeting last January, we were highly impressed to learn about the exciting propositions by the new academic and social entrepreneurs. We will watch this space closely!
