Since launching in 2018 as a public innovation pilot within University College London, it has quickly grown as an independent not-for-profit that attracts aspiring PhD founders from more than 30 universities across the UK, offering specialised deeptech training and support alongside their degree and the opportunity to access key early funding to accelerate their ventures.To date, Conception X has recruited five cohorts, built 260 founding teams, had one exit – quantum drug discovery company Rahko – and its portfolio startups have gone on to raise £26 million in early-stage investments and grants.
