VIS-3 works with the top universities and government to provide expertise in entrepreneurship through workshop delivery, coaching and programme design. Read more about some of the top tier clients we have worked with below.
Oxentia and the Royal Academy of Engineering
We work with Oxentia to provide coaching to the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Leaders in Innovation Fellowships Programme supporting researchers with entrepreneurship and commercialisation of their research as part of the Newton Fund. We worked with researchers from South Africa, Turkey and the Philippines leading Fellows to win prizes for their pitches in each cohort.

Birkbeck University of London
We provide workshop delivery, research services and coaching to Birkbeck. Dr Harveen Chugh has delivered ‘Get Lean’ workshops to students on the Birkbeck Pioneer Programme and shared the experience of building VIS-3 through a lean approach. There was great feedback from students including Mukillan Karuppiah who said ‘Thanks for the excellent session’ (Jan 2018) and Dicta Cole who found it ‘informative and enlightening’ (Feb 2017).
We delivered a keynote speech to students at Birkbeck during Global Entrepreneurship Week and led a Speed Mentoring session to help students develop their early stage ideas. Harveen was also invited by Birkbeck and Girls in Tech to take part in a panel discussion on “Women Talk Tech – How I transformed my career” with the aim of inspiring more women into careers in the tech industry.
PA Consulting Group and UK Trade & Investment’s Sirius programme
We provided consultancy to the UK government’s Sirius programme to recruit and grow start-ups in the UK, where Dr Harveen Chugh managed a portfolio of start-ups to raise £4.97mn equity investment and £1.45mn non-equity funds. She worked with companies across sectors including cleantech (bio-bean), AI/fintech (FinGenius), digital/creative (Leaf.fm), wearable tech (MotionMetrics) and health tech (Filisia).
