Video clip: Amy found that being involved with a spin-off involved learning new skills and attending formal training

So, when I started at OxStem I didn't have a large amount of business training. I had done some entrepreneurship and business courses through the Doctoral Training Centre that I did my D.Phil. in, and also, in connection with the Said Business School, partly linked up through the DTC's. So had not a huge amount of business experience but I worked very, very closely, sort of side by side, with our CEO and CFO and not to mention the fact that our co-founding scientists, themselves, are entrepreneurs in their own right, and highly successful business people, if you like, in terms of commercialising science really. And I have obviously been on some formal training courses to supplement that but it's been a sort of learning curve the whole way. It continues to be, which I hope it'll continue, will continue in the future to be.
