Our project is seed funded by Climate-KIC http://www.climate-kic.org/, the EU’s largest public-private innovation partnership focused on climate change, consisting of dynamic companies, the best academic institutions and the public sector.
We are also working with science and technology experts at Imperial College London, where our lab is based. Imperial is a science-based institution, consistently rated amongst the world’s best universities. The Vesco Team are all Imperial Alumni, having specialised in Sustainable Business on the MSc Environmental Technology course.
We are working closely with Nicola Millson, 6heads (sustainability and innovation group) co-founder, to accelerate the setting up of our business. Nicola is a successful entrepreneur and intrepreneur. She set up the Richard Branson School of Entrepreneurship and works with a wide range of large organisations, including Interface, Marks & Spencer and the Carbon Trust, to design innovative social and environmental solutions that deliver commercial return.
