Davide Turi: "During 15 years spent in Corporate Innovation, I've collected a full catalogue of reasons why large companies fail at innovating. For this reason, I've co-founded StudioZao, a corporate entrepreneurship organisation that helps large companies develop internal entrepreneurial capability and learn the "Startup Way" through accelerating idea-stage, deep-tech startups projects. Moreover, I help entrepreneurs and innovators to transform their ideas into credible stories for investors, competition judges or execs. Among other things I'm the resident business coach at Imperial College London, the most innovative University in UK."
Mark Elliott: "I started life programming telecoms hardware, but grabbed an opportunity with an innovative Silicon Valley startup to build the international development/training/technical arm through to the NASDAQ IPO and pivoting the company onto service revenue for the $1.5 billion sale. Since then I have been involved in software security (marketing it), arts retail (everything but painting it), renewable energy and home automation (creating my own company and all its products) and entrepreneurial learning & startup support (learning and changing it). Amongst other things, I am currently Business Advisor to the Design Council Spark accelerator for physical products, based in London."
