It is often considered that one of the challenges to maximising commercialisation of inventions and innovation is ensuring a sufficient supply of the three key elements: Ideas, Funding and People. In hot bed clusters such as Cambridge, there would appear to be no shortage of ideas and there are supportive investors and experienced entrepreneurs available. 

Is there ever enough investment or talent to go around will always be a good question. More specifically, perhaps, is how to maximise the available talent in order to maximise the return to investors as great science gets translated into better products. 

Potentially, a lack of a clear and acceptable exit route for company founders and seed investors, other than trade sale, may inhibit those founders starting additional companies on other ideas as well as hinder seed investment recycling. The panel at this event will discuss what shareholder provisions for founder exit could be acceptable to follow on investors.
