4T2 Sensors Ltd

“BizzInn mentoring took us from idea to prototype to launch in a short space of time. BizzInn advised 4T2 on investment and exit strategy, and arranged a residency at the BioHub Birmingham (the University’s bio-incubator). 4T2 replicated what they learnt at the BioHub to build their own laboratory.”

Aceleron Energy Ltd

“Our enterprise could have remained parochial but the networks gave us global reach. Aceleron’s initial concept was to upcycle used electric car batteries for use as affordable energy storage. BizzInn advised exploring additional markets and identifying funding streams to support the business.”
