Uzma joined Octopus Ventures in 2018 after working as a research scientist in the fields of photochemistry and synthetic biology.

She has built and led our bio investment strategy and today focuses on bio and frontier tech.

During her PhD, she worked with the University of Manchester’s innovation initiative to assess the commercial feasibility of technologies developed at the university, realising her passion for cutting-edge technologies.

She says: “Through this experience I learnt about the many challenges of spinning out companies and taking disruptive innovations from the lab bench to the market.”
