Cambridge Innovation Summit  2021 on Zoom
Sponsored by
  SVB Horizontal  



 Curated Matching Session at the Cambridge Innovation Summit .

 Working Session    <=>      Zoom CEO.      

 This will be kicked off with a presentation from the University of Cambridge about the Cambridge Cluster (warts and all!) and how best to engage with it.

This year our tried and tested formula will be moving to Zoom - enabling delegated locked down around the world to engage with us. We will be using break-out rooms to enable delegates to work in smaller groups on themes that are important to them. We will also arrange 'pods' where delegates can speak 1-2-1.

Do you know the next big thing? Watch magic. 


Last year brought the inaugural CfBI curated match event to the Cambridge Innovation Summit. A great success with over 50 ‘hot-dates’ conducted on the day and innumerable follow-up meetings - we are still seeing the ripples.


This year is bigger and better. Can you afford to miss this session? 


> A global audience. Delegates already signed up from US, China, France, Germany, Japan and UK


> Hand-picked corporate innovators who want to meet the next big thing. Delegates from CfBI consortia including: Corporate Venturing Leadership, Open Innovation Meets Big Data, Rapid Decarbonisation, Digital Health and Distributed Ledger Technologies 


‘Team Peter’ showcasing the latest scale-ups in Cambridge and ‘Team Adam’ sourcing from London, Oxford and around the world. Scouting assisted by Cambridge Innovation Summit  sponsors Silicon Valley Bank. Who will win this varsity clash? 


Start-ups and scale-ups primed and ready to work with Corporate big hitters. Is this dynamic partnership, collaboration, mentoring, new supplier/product/processes - you decide. In a few select cases, there are prime investment opportunities.


Daring new format... 10 back to back 5-minute pitches followed by dragon’s dens. Whose will you visit: 


·         quiz the prospective partners about the details of their project

·         or hear other delegates ask probing questions.

·         are you all-in?. 


Let me in!


Corporate Attendees - sign up, BYOB, dial-up your curiosity and we’ll do the rest!


Start-ups - Get ready to prepare and pre-record a 5-minute pitch. Then get ready to roar on the 30th June.
