Prime Minister Visits Catz Alumnus Start-up in USA

Prime Minister David Cameron today visited the premises of 1776, a firm which was co-founded in 2013 by Catz alumnus Evan Burfield (2002, PPE). Based in Washington D.C., 1776 is a platform designed to connect start-ups with the resources that they need to excel.

Attending a breakfast meeting on cyber security, the Prime Minister took a brief tour of 1776, which acts as a business incubator and investment fund to guide early-stage ventures in sectors like energy, education, and health care that often go on to work with governments.
