The Gianna Angelopoulos Programme

for Science Technology and Innovation

Evonetix started when a small team of 12 people span out of Cambridge Consultants in 2015, based on an idea that could revolutionise the manufacture of synthetic DNA. The company has since grown to over 100 people, raised more than $45million in capital, and proven the core technology. 

Matt Hayes, one of the founding members, will share with you some of the highs and lows of that journey, along with some of the lessons he has learnt along the way.
