Linda Smith, Founder and CEO of BetaDen said: “Cohort 3.0 will be the third cycle of our successful programme, and we can’t wait to see the applications come in from a vast array of technology developers. For Cohort 3.0 we are looking to accelerate companies that are established, have been running for at least three-to-six months and seek routes to market or investment readiness. Previous cohort members have had significant achievements to date with the support of BetaDen, inclusive of, global patent registration, successful MVP launches and industry partnering.”
