Tim Harper

For twenty five years, from the European Space Agency to Graphene start ups I have been identifying, understanding and acting on technology trends to build new companies or facilitate innovation in existing ones. My hands on approach as an early stage CEO uses skills such as open innovation, strategy, digital marketing, public relations and the analysis of new business areas or investment opportunities. This has been complemented by my work in assessing and addressing the societal challenges created by the development and governance of emerging technologies such as nanotechnology, synthetic biology, regenerative medicine and geoengineering.
