Pathfinder course on aquaculture and animal health

Pathfinder - a programme made possible by a partnership between Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Skillfluence, and SRUC’s centre of excellence for research and knowledge exchange in the rural and veterinary sector (RAVIC) - offers support to start-ups, existing businesses and entrepreneurs in the Highlands and Islands, via a 6 month programme of coaching, group sessions and expert speakers. It helps to accelerate ideas for new products, services or start-up ventures.
Their next cohort starts in March 2022 and will have a theme of aquaculture and animal health - apply by 18 February 2022.

This is a unique opportunity for all businesses connected to animals or animal health to accelerate their ideas for new products, services or start-up ventures.

About Pathfinder

The focus of the programme is to deliver rapid, practical results for ambitious businesses with new ideas. Participants are taught
and coached by a team of leading experts from the worlds of innovation, product development, finance, and business strategy,
and animal health.
In addition, they will pitch to Angel investors and receive 1-2-1 coaching to rapidly de-risk and commercialise their ideas.
Fully funded places are available for companies based in the Highlands and Islands region. The programme is for existing businesses, social enterprises, entrepreneurs and start-ups who have ambitions to grow by developing new products services or business models. This includes businesses developing technologies to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you aim to improve health, welfare or production efficiency in animal agriculture or aquaculture, offer solutions around the concept of a circular economy, support the transition to net zero carbon agri-food systems or address public health and social inequalities then Pathfinder may be for you.
