Richard Cooke, founder of Hy-genie
I’m not from the startup world, I’m a medic at heart. I came to NOVA with the problem of hand-hygiene compliance in hospitals. They’ve helped me to find a solution, provided me with the technical team to build it and now are helping me to scale it into a successful, profitable business
Startups can be a lonely venture, but with Nova as my co-founder I’ve had a passionate team engaging with me throughout the process. I’ve been able to take an idea surrounding a known problem and follow it through to a tested and validated solution

Alistair Marsden, founder of CLIK
Partnering with Nova and following their lean startup methods has taught me the importance of working hand-in-hand with my users and stakeholders. They’ve enabled me to build a business based first and foremost on both the user and customers’ different needs. We have developed a fantastic product that’s exceeded my expectations and is continuing to help thousands of people across the UK
