Great read and spot Harry!

With all that's going on at the moment the commitment to spin-outs is really important if we want to continue to grow to hit these goals we've got. Offering £20m POC fund is an important game changer for some of these innovative ventures. It's nice to see that the focus isn't JUST on improving processes, there is a wealth of changes like fostering culture changes, processes and more! Could definitely help us boost our position as a science and tech hub!!
