They will also have access to BetaDen’s extensive network of partners, alumni, and investors as part of the programme.

The programme has successfully supported over 50 technology businesses in Worcestershire to date.

The innovations it has backed include 5G at sea by Jet Connectivity, large-scale 3D concrete printing by ChangeMaker 3D, and voice-face recognition technology by FARx.

These initiatives have indirectly supported over 210 jobs, raising over £507 million in total investments and funding.

Joining BetaDen’s Cohort 8.0 are eight firms, namely; DMA Technologies, Garland Surgical, HD Connectivity (uControl), Nonowrap, Sandfield Engineering, Smart 90, Split Second Research, and Zone Manager.

Donston Powell, director of external affairs at BetaDen, said: "We are excited to welcome our latest cohort to BetaDen and work with them to take their innovations to the next level over the coming months.

"Our award-winning programme is designed to equip participants with the tools and support they need to accelerate the commercialisation of their products and we can’t wait to see what Cohort 8.0 will achieve."

BetaDen recently announced its collaboration with Apogee Associates, Wynne-Jones IP, Jerroms, and Higgs LLP as commercial partners for Cohort 8.0.
