ARC and Aspect
4th November 2022, Royal Society of Arts, London
Aspect, The British Academy, ARC and Aspect Angels have joined forces to present reSHAPE, the first comprehensive showcase event for high-calibre social science, humanities and arts (SHAPE) ventures.
Universities are transforming research from social sciences, humanities and the arts (SHAPE) to create ventures. These ventures are having a major impact in bringing products, services and insights into society and the economy. Uniting innovators, government and investors, reSHAPE showcases the pioneering work being done by ventures large and small in addressing challenges from poverty to climate change to big business and the opportunities this presents.
15 ventures will be presented to audience of over 100 investors, entrepreneurs, university staff, and key stakeholders.
Only 20 tickets available!
