What our community say...
As a start-up business with global-sized dreams, investigating the research and development of our ideas for a natural solution to our climate emergency and global water crisis seemed like an extraordinarily tall mountain to climb. Canterbury Christ Church University’s academic team made our mission into something achievable, easy, understandable, and exciting. The team’s undeniable talent, expertise, compassion, and communication skill have created a fantastic relationship between Bare Native and the University.
Abigail Gibson-Wass , Founder and CEO at Bare Native
Working together has presented significant benefits to our business. We have been fortunate to collaborate on some key projects which has resulted in valuable data that we are likely to use in the future to further our own product development, possibly leading to commercialisation of a novel assay. I’d encourage other companies to collaborate with Christ Church and academia in general.
