Daniel Dixon and Vittorio Bartoli, along with their team Accellarus, were awarded second place in a Dragon’s Den style competition, winning £2,000 of lab space and services by pitching a start-up business idea to investors.
The competition came at the end of a 4-day course on building a synthetic biology-rich biotech business held by BrisSynBio and SynbiCITE. The company, Accellarus aims to accelerate the commercialisation of biosynthetic pathways using it’s designer chassis organism, the world’s first organism whose ecological niche is an industrial bioprocess.
