A few months ago I interviewed Mark Champkins for a podcast interview for the Institute for Manufacturing,Cambridge. The podcast has only just gone live on the University website.
A former Dragons’ Den alum, Mark has created a range of products to help children at school. His company is called Concentrate.
Mark has just been named as Inventor in Residence for Science Museum, London
. It’s the first time the museum have ever made such an appointment.
Mark’s role will be to create new inventions and gadgets based on exhibits within the museum, as well as inspiring the next generation of eager Edison’s and budding Bayliss’s.
The interview can be heard here. He covers quite a lot of ground from developing and launching products, PR stunts, celebrity patents and more.
If you are interested in the book he mentions details here.
