Mark Hammond

Founding Director, Deep Science Ventures

Mark is the Founding Director at Deep Science Ventures (DSV) building a new paradigm for applied science.


After completing a PhD in Neuropharmacology and Artificial Intelligence he worked in cleantech venture before going on to build out Imperial College’s deep-tech start-up accelerator and academic spin-out ecosystem. This experience led to the realisation that the linear commercialisation models of academia and industry stand little chance of addressing the host of systemic challenges currently faced by humanity. To address this he left in 2016 to create DSV which systematically identifies sector shifting opportunities and their constraints and then brings together the right people and capital to address those gaps, across areas from energy storage to oncology.
