CUTEC’s Business Surgeries


Wanting to start a business but not sure how to get it going? Perhaps you’d like to commercialise a new discovery or piece of technology, but can’t decide which route to take? In these difficult times, it is particularly important that you get the right advice. CUTEC’s Business Surgeries are here to help!


The Surgeries run in Michaelmas Term and cover a range of topics to give your new venture the edge. Surgeries are given by expert Advisors (usually from local professional organisations such as law firms and patent agencies) and provide FREE, confidential advice on a one-to-one basis.
