GUV Summit: University Corner

In an increasingly globalised world, innovation and the positive
disruption it brings are no longer about a singular rogue scientist driving forward humanity’s progress: it is about collaboration. And to find the seeds of this networking and teamwork essential to our technological success being planted, you need look no further than Global University Venturing’s inaugural summit.

Focusing on the theme of ‘Investing in Disruption’, the event, held at the prestigious Baker Botts offices in the heart of the City of London, brought together individuals, organisation, and corporations representing every part of the innovation pipeline.

The idea of collaboration was formalised early on at the Summit with a keynote speech from Shelley Harrison, a senior advisor at Coller Capital and executive-in-residence at New York University, who also spoke in a video interview.
